Reviews

Kirkus
"Kaiser's research is both comprehensive and illuminating.... An admiring, richly textured portrait of a leader confronting the unthinkable."

Williamson Murray, author of A War To Be Won: Fighting the Second World War
"David Kaiser has written an outstanding book on Franklin Roosevelt's strategic course in the dark days, from the late 1930s to America's entrance into the Second World War. Among its many strong points is a revealing and persuasive reconsideration of Roosevelt's strategic thinking during this period. Above all Kaiser's portrait underlines that without the president's wisdom and political sagacity, the Germans might well have won the war. This is a book that anyone with an interest in that terrible conflict must read."
Michael Beschloss, New York Times Book Review
"[A] judicious, detailed and soundly researched history.... Kaiser has brought us a careful, nuanced, credible account of the events and complex issues surrounding America's entry into World War II, which, however historical fashions change, is likely to wear well over the years."

Wall Street Journal
"Mr. Kaiser...offers a tightly focused examination of Roosevelt's foreign policy from the defeat of France in May 1940 to the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor in December 1941.... Most will value Mr. Kaiser's clearly written narrative, which focuses on the improvisational planning of the president and the men around him."

Washington Post
"Others have written about this period, but few with his precision and insight.... His thoroughly researched and well-informed narrative of what happened on the road to war makes the book fully worth the cover price."

Battles and Book Reviews
"An interesting and compelling account of the events in America during the 18 months prior to American entry into WWII.... I highly recommend this book to anybody interested in World War II, but especially to people who think they are familiar with America's role in that war. An outstanding book."
