Description

"[A] triumph of meticulous scholarship and keen insight propelled by a marvelously written narrativeJordan's American Warlords accomplishes for FDR and World War II what Doris Kearns Goodwin's Team of Rivals achieved for Lincoln and the Civil War."-Armchair General From New York Times bestselling author Jonathan W. Jordan-author of Brothers, Rivals, Victors-comes the intimate true story of President Franklin Roosevelt's inner circle of military leadership, the team of rivals who shaped World War II and America. After the attack on Pearl Harbor, the United States was wakened from its slumber of isolationism. To help him steer the nation through the coming war, President Franklin Roosevelt turned to the greatest "team of rivals" since the days of Lincoln: Secretary of War Henry Stimson, Admiral Ernest J. King, and General George C. Marshall. Together, these four men led the nation through history's most devastating conflict and ushered in a new era of unprecedented American influence, all while forced to overcome the profound personal and political differences which divided them. A startling and intimate reassessment of U.S. leadership during World War II, American Warlords is a remarkable glimpse behind the curtain of presidential power.
