A riveting, deeply personal account of history in the making—from the president who inspired us to believe in the power of democracy.
The definitive three-volume history that FDR did not live to write: the story of World War II from his perspective, showing his mastery of strategy, his vision, and how he overcame resistance from Churchill and his own generals to set the course for victory. Mantle of Command, Commander in Chief, and War and Peace have been celebrated as "masterly." (The Wall Street Journal).
In his deeply-researched, sweeping trilogy, Nigel Hamilton rewrites the history of FDR's role in World War II. First, Mantle of Command offers a radical new perspective on FDR's masterful—and underappreciated—personal charge of military direction following the disaster of Pearl Harbor. Then, in Commander in Chief, Hamilton spotlights the president's infamous clash with Churchill when he attempted to abandon Allied D-Day strategy. Finally, with War and Peace, Hamilton's celebrated trilogy culminates with a story of triumph and tragedy as FDR orchestrates D-Day, and, while gravely ill, travels from Hawai'i to Yalta, designing a victorious peace that he would not live to witness. Now we know: even on his deathbed, FDR was the war's great visionary.
