Threshold of War : Franklin D.Roosevelt and American Entry into World War II
For Franklin D.Roosevelt, the spring of 1941 was a time of uncertainty. Hitler's armies were poised to strike, but no one was sure where the next attack would come, and Churchill and members of Roosevelt's administration were urging him to intervene before it was too late. In this account of the American entry into World War II, the author shows that Roosevelt was not the vacillating, impulsive, and disorganized leader as he is often portrayed, but a cautious, rational man, capable of acting with great determination.
