A well described history of Franklin D Roosevelt and his wife Eleanor Roosevelt. An interesting view of the time of the second world war from the American point of view.

This account of the relationships between Lincoln and the members of his Cabinet and his Generals held my interest throughout.

FROM AMAZON: With an extraordinary collection of details, Goodwin masterfully weaves together a striking number of story lines—Eleanor and Franklin’s marriage and remarkable partnership, Eleanor’s life as First Lady, and FDR’s White House and its impact on America as well as on a world at war. Goodwin effectively melds these details and stories into an unforgettable and intimate portrait of Eleanor and Franklin Roosevelt and of the time during which a new, modern America was born.

I really appreciated the details of our run up to WWII.
I was surprised at the level of anti-Semitism in the country.
I hadn't understood the full depth of the situation England was in, and their desperate need for help. I had not understood the magnitude of the loss at Dunkirk.
I was amazed at the productivity of the US manufacturing machine, once Roosevelt was able to to get it cranked up.
I was amazed at the depth of the isolationist feeling in the USA, and how delicately FDR had to handle to movement toward war preparation.
I was surprised at the level of support we provided Russia (who also needed help on the Eastern front). A tidbit: Stalin refused to fly!
The Japanese soldier's commitment to their casue (or theri emperor) was incredible.
I was surprised and disappointed in the inability of so many of our national leaders (both business and govt) to see the implications of the German war machine.
I was surprised at the depth of the engagement of Eleanor in the matters of social justice and civil rights.
An excellent read.
