Robert Dallek puts to rest with facts and exhaustive research the myths surrounding FDR's leadership of our country in regards to his foreign policy. His even handed narrative will show that FDR believed his power came from the American people and he led and made decisions accordingly. This book could well be the finale on FDR and his foreign policy vision.
