Overview
-

The military leader closest to President Roosevelt during World War 2 tells his story from 1942 to V-J Day. The 70th anniversary of victory in Europe and Japan is an appropriate time to reprint the memoirs of Admiral Leahy. This book will appeal to all readers interested in World War II and particularly the American role and how President Roosevelt’s orders and directives were discussed and carried out. Leahy’s memoir stands out for its candid and dispassionate understanding of events, since he was one of the few to be on a first-name basis with the president. Of particular interest are Leahy’s accounts of the main conferences from 1942 going forward where he was always at FDR’s side. Long out of print, this paperback edition should be welcome to all major libraries and the book trade.
