I've read a number of books on WWII and they've mostly followed the military perspective. This book clearly places Roosevelt as the decision maker on the US side at the beginning of the war and it describes the early arguments from his side. The book seems well documented with many, perhaps too many, excerpts from letters and diaries.
I felt there was too much repetition leading up to the African landings and then the book suddenly ended. I don't know if the material ran out (FDR was highly secretive) or the military took over control.
From my perspective this is an original and important book. I've picked up a couple of other books on FDR to try to validate some of these conclusions.

Excellent narrator. Engaging, well-written story. Not just a rehash of other books. I thought the author was very insightful and enjoyed the book. Have listened twice already.
