Read by Stephen Graybill.
In this fascinating and deeply researched account, Craig Nelson traces how Franklin D. Roosevelt steadily and sometimes secretively put America on a war footing by convincing America's top industrialists such as Henry Ford Jr. to retool their factories, by diverting the country's supplies of raw materials to the war effort, and above all by convincing the American people to endure shortages, to work in wartime factories, and to send their sons into harm's way. Within a few years, the nation's workers were producing thousands of airplanes and tanks, hundreds of warships and submarines. Under FDR's resolute leadership, victory at land and sea and air across the globe began at home in America, a powerful and essential narrative largely overlooked in conventional histories of the war but which, in Nelson's skilled, authoritative hands, becomes an illuminating and important work destined to become an American history classic.
