An unlikely alliance and an unlikely result
If one were totally ignorant of the reason for which World War II began, or the reasons it was fought, this book will lead you to the heart of the matter.
Concise and driven by facts, it is an honest look at the very unlikely alliance that was forged and the way the world was politically shaped in the decades after the war was over.
Nice mini biographies of each leader. Would have given it four stars except for a glaring error. The author states FDR was laid to rest in the rose garden at Hyde Park with his parent. His parents are buried in the churchyard at St Jerome’s. Only FDR and Eleanor are buried in the garden at Hyde Park.
