Description
(Nominated for the 2014 National Book Award) Also the biographer of John F. Kennedy, General Bernard "Monty" Montgomery, and Bill Clinton, Nigel Hamilton here gives us a dramatic account of how Franklin D. Roosevelt took charge of America's military in World War II, offering a radical new perspective on FDR's masterful if underappreciated leadership of the Allied war effort. After the disaster of Pearl Harbor, we see Roosevelt devising a global strategy that will defeat Hitler and the Japanese, rescue Churchill and the British people, and quell a near insurrection of his own generals and the War Department. Hamilton's account drives toward Operation Torch—the Allied invasion of Axis-occupied Northwest Africa—and illuminates its implications for FDR and the outcome of the war.
