War And Peace: FDR's Final Odyssey, D-Day To Yalta, 1943-1945

Author(s): Nigel Hamilton
For the 75th Anniversary of D-Day, the end to Hamilton's 3-part saga of FDR at war offers proof that he was WWII's key strategist, even on his deathbed. Hamilton rewrites the account of WWII strategy given by Churchill in his memoirs. Now 75 years after D-Day see who was responsible for rescuing, and insisting upon, the American-led invasion of France in June 1944, and why the invasion was led by Eisenhower. As FDR's triumph turns to tragedy, we see how, in the months left him as US commander in chief, FDR attempted at Hawaii, Quebec, and Yalta to prepare the U.N. for an American-backed postwar world order.
