Publisher's Summary

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!

The History We Never Knew

The book is an inside look at FDR, Churchill, and Stalin's key advisors -- and descriptions of their administrations during WWII and formation of the United Nations. The history is fascinating, because it is not the things taught in history classes. Susan Butler did an excellent job making the book thorough and interesting.

A real winner

Ms. Butler's encyclopedic research and Mr. Guidall's superb reading make this a wonderful Audible experience. Makes me want to read more of her books and other books read by Mr. Guidall.
