Summary
"Historian Marc Wortman ... explores the little-known history of America's clandestine involvement in World War II before the attack on Pearl Harbor. Prior to that infamous day, America had long been involved in a shadow war. Winston Churchill, England's beleaguered new Prime Minister, pleaded with Franklin D. Roosevelt for help. FDR concocted ingenious ways to come to his aid, without breaking the Neutrality Acts.... FDR also had to contend with growing isolationism and anti-Semitism as he tried to influence public opinion.... While Americans were sympathetic to those being crushed under Axis power, they were unwilling to enter a foreign war.... Combining military and political history, Wortman tells the eye-opening story of how FDR took the country to war."--Jacket flaps
