Much of what we know about D-Day and the Allies' World War II endgame is drawn from Winston Churchill's memoirs, but here Nigel Hamilton argues convincingly that it was Franklin Roosevelt who was the war's greatest visionary. Against Churchill's objections, FDR championed the great American-led invasion of France in June 1944, and ensured that it was led by Eisenhower. Even as the dramatic plan succeeded, however, Roosevelt became aware that he was terminally ill. There was still much to be done, and Hamilton presents a compelling portrait of the valiant Commander-in-Chief, who attempted at Hawaii, Quebec, and Yalta to prepare the United Nations for an American-backed postwar world order that he would not live to see.
