Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This collection boasts an all-star cast of distinguished authors who have mastered the vast literature of World War II, have dug deeply into the multiple archives and manuscript collections, and possess the writing skills to make the wartime events of sixty-plus years ago come alive. Using a variety of different methods, they probe and analyze the wartime leadership of that most elusive of presidents. Be he Sphinx or Juggler or Dr. Win-the-War, FDR made the key wartime decisions that laid the foundation for the postwar world and created inevitable controversy. This is an indispensable book for serious scholars of FDR and World War II."
—J. Garry Clifford
