Based on years of archival research and interviews with President Roosevelt’s last surviving aides and family members, Nigel Hamilton’s THE MANTLE OF COMMAND offers an in-depth account of FDR’s masterful—and underappreciated—command of the Allied war effort. This book promises to change the way you remember FDR, and it comes just in time for the 70th anniversary of D-Day, June 6th.
Local author, Nigel Hamilton is a best-selling and award-winning biographer of President John F. Kennedy, General Bernard “Monty” Montgomery, and President Bill Clinton, among other subjects. He is a senior fellow in the McCormack Graduate School, University of Massachusetts, Boston, and first president of the Biographers International Organization.
