The Mantle of Command
"This is revisionist history in the best sense of the word -- it forces us to rethink assumptions and to reconsider the way that history unfolded . . . This bold argument is extensively researched, well stated, and will undoubtedly change the way we see Franklin Roosevelt." -- Christian Science Monitor "A fine beginning to an important project." -- Wall Street Journal Based on years of archival research and interviews with the last surviving aides and Roosevelt family members, The Mantle of Command offers a radical new perspective on Franklin Delano Roosevelt's masterful -- and underappreciated -- leadership of the Allied war effort. After the disaster at Pearl Harbor, Roosevelt devised a global strategy that would save Churchill and the British and defeat Hitler and the Japanese. As Nigel Hamilton's account reaches its climax and U.S. forces conduct Operation Torch -- the successful invasion of French Northwest Africa -- the tide of war turns in the Allies' favor, and FDR's genius for military command is clear. This intimate, sweeping look at a great President in history's greatest conflict is gripping, essential reading.
