Reviews

PRAISE FOR WAR AND PEACE
"War and Peace is the third and final volume in Hamilton's "F.D.R. at War" trilogy and certainly as gripping and powerfully argued as the first two . . . Hamilton's case for Roosevelt is a compelling one. Even in decline, the president had a vision that eluded others, including his closest partner [Churchill]."
--The New York Times Book Review

"If history belongs to the best and latest writer, Nigel Hamilton has won the war for Roosevelt's legacy from Churchill."
--The Wall Street Journal

"A first class, lens-changing work."
--James N. Mattis, former United States Secretary of Defense

PRAISE FOR MANTLE OF COMMAND

"The Mantle of Command is splendid: It's the memoir Roosevelt didn't get to write."
--New York Times Book Review

"Masterly."
--Wall Street Journal

"FDR has frequently been underestimated as a military leader, yielding, in the historical imagination, to George Marshall and Winston Churchill, among others. Nigel Hamilton attacks this view with his characteristic verve, portraying a president with the reins of war fully, if often subtly, in his hands. The conventional wisdom will never be the same."
--H.W. Brands, author of Traitor to His Class: The Privileged Life and Radical Presidency of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

"Nigel Hamilton's Mantle of Command is a stirring and noteworthy book about Roosevelt's crucial role as commander-in-chief during World War II. Hamilton writes with insight, passion, and a great grasp of history. I believe this book will become the standard by which other books about FDR's role in World War II will be measured."
--Carlo D'Este, author of Patton: A Genius for War and Warlord: A Life of Churchill at War, 1874-1945

"This is not the Roosevelt (or Churchill) you'd expect. From the start, an aggressive, in-charge FDR emerges from a wonderful weaving of established scholarship and the fascinating bits and pieces that make history live. Churchill is an inspirational nag, with a busy, unfocused strategic vision. A key entry into the ongoing debate over who made grand strategy in the early war years--Roosevelt or Churchill?"
--Warren F. Kimball, author of Forged in War: Roosevelt, Churchill, and the Second World War

PRAISE FOR COMMANDER IN CHIEF

"Ably dramatizes Roosevelt's wranglings with Churchill during World War II ... Provocative ... It is stimulating to follow Hamilton as he lays out his argument."
--Thomas E. Ricks, New York Times Book Review

"Superb."
--Fareed Zakaria
