Dr. Allan Lichtman, FDR and the Jews
Co-authored with Richard Breitman, this book draws upon extensive new research to offer a portrait of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt contrasting with prevailing views about his priorities during World War II.
From the New York Times review:
While saving the Jews of Europe was never a high priority for Roosevelt, he did more for them than any other world leader at the time, despite the enormous obstacles he faced at home.
Dr. Allan Lichtman is Professor of History at American University. An expert in modern American history and quantitative methods, he is an authority on factors influencing U.S. presidential elections.
