The Borrowed Years, 1938-1941: America On The Way To War
By Richard M. Ketchum
Random House, 1989, 896 pp
Purchase

This is an engrossing, beautifully written popular history intertwined with autobiography (the author was a Yale undergraduate at the time). Readers who lived through those years will know that Ketchum has it right.
