Mantle of Command is a masterful re-examination of the under appreciated but pivotal role played by FDR in all the Allied strategic decisions in World War II. With fascinating detail Hamilton compelling narrates how FDR, often at odds with Churchill and his own generals, skillfully maneuvers the Allies to yield to his vision of the best way to achieve victory, a victory that was by no means assured in the early days of the war.
