Summary
In Roosevelt's Centurions, distinguished historian Joseph E. Persico reveals how, during World War II, Franklin D. Roosevelt seized the levers of wartime power like no president since Abraham Lincoln during the Civil War. Taking us inside the Allied war councils, the author reveals how the president brokered strategy with contentious allies, rallied morale on the home front, and handpicked a team of proud, sometimes prickly warriors who, he believed, could fight a global war
Summary
Explains how Franklin D. Roosevelt assumed the role of a hands-on wartime leader, discussing his contributions to military strategy and analyzing how his decisions may have helped end or prolonged the war
