No End Save Victory: How FDR Led the Nation into War

We rated this book:


In 1939, the German and Japanese militaries were rapidly growing stronger, more aggressive, and more threatening to the United States. Franklin Delano Roosevelt, while also dealing with one of the most severe depressions in US history, prepared himself, the US government, and America’s people for war. This book tells the tale of Roosevelt’s amazing foresight and his decisive actions, which resulted in the United States transforming from an isolationist and timid state into a military superpower.

This book provides an excellent overview of the events preceding America’s entry into WWII, insight on Roosevelt’s thoughts and actions, and an in-depth perspective on the American political situation, particularly in regards to Roosevelt. The book cites many newspaper articles from the time and uses government records and transcripts, leading to an exceedingly accurate portrayal of public and official opinion at the time. The book also moved quickly, which was pleasant. My enjoyment of the book was slightly tainted by the blatant adoration that Kaiser constantly shows to FDR and FDR’s policies. However, on the whole it was an excellent read.
