“Thankfully Enigma Books has now brought this landmark back to life.”—Peter Zelikow, Foreign Affairs
Because it offers a rare insight into the workings of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s wartime diplomacy, this book is the classic account of FDR’s foreign policy during World War II, examining how Harry Hopkins, his friend and confidant, became the president’s “point man” with Stalin, Churchill, de Gaulle, and other allied leaders. It is the inside history of America’s inevitable wartime rise as a great power, written in wonderfully readable prose by White House speechwriter and prize-winning playwright Robert Sherwood.
