Based on years of archival research and interviews with the last surviving aides and Roosevelt family members, bestselling and award-winning biographer Nigel Hamilton offers a definitive account of FDR’s masterful—and underappreciated—command of the Allied war effort. Hamilton takes readers inside FDR’s White House Oval Study—his personal command center—and into the meetings where he battled with Churchill about strategy and tactics and overrode the near mutinies of his own generals and secretary of war. According to The New York Times, “The Mantle of Command is splendid: It’s the memoir Roosevelt didn’t get to write”.
Nigel Hamilton is a Senior Fellow in the McCormack Graduate School, University of Massachusetts-Boston, and first president of the Biographers International Organization.
