Susan Butler's brilliantly listenable audiobook firmly places FDR where he belongs, as the American president engaged most directly in diplomacy and strategy, who not only had an ambitious plan for the postwar world but had the strength, ambition, and personal charm to overcome Churchill's reluctance and Stalin's suspicion to bring about what was, in effect, an American peace and to avoid the disastrous consequences that followed the botched peace of Versailles in 1919.
It is at once a long overdue tribute to FDR and his vision and a serious work of history that flows like a novel. I would rank it next to Margaret MacMillan's Paris 1919, and it casts new light on the character and war aims of Stalin, Churchill, and FDR himself. Brava!
