A Democracy at War: America's fight at Home & Abroad in World War II
A Democracy at War: America's fight at Home & Abroad in World War II
By William L. O'Neill
The Free Press, 1993, 480 pp

A familiar story, told here as well as, if not better than, it has ever been done before. William O'Neill of Rutgers University, one of the most distinguished and prolific historians of recent American history, covers the diplomacy of the pre-war and war periods in a masterful manner, along with vivid accounts of the land, sea and air battles, domestic politics and the home front. Recommended without reservation.
