About the book:

Written by an eminent military historian, American Strategy in World War II explores this fascinating subject with rare perception and depth. Attention is focused on grand strategy, focused at the highest level of outlook and decision. Starting with a reminder of some of the major strategic decisions made by the Allies, the book discusses how the British and Americans were able to use common sense and an overwhelming desire to maintain their common alliance to resolve their strategic differences. A study of Mr. Roosevelt as Commander-in-Chief follows and the question of his influence on the military conduct of the war is considered. The book concludes with an incisive look at how our fledgling air force acquired the necessary power needed to make decisive contributions to victory.
