Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship by Jon Meacham
Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship

Syd, May 7, 2008

Anyone interested in Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Winston Churchill, their relationship and the impact it had on World War II, must read this book.

Jon Meacham has written a true tour de force. This is a book about a unique friendship. One between two of the most powerful men of our century.

To enhance an understanding of the war years, 1939-1945, these two fascinating human beings and how their sometimes complicated fiendship was crucial to its outcome and after, this is a must read.

Lincoln's Sanctuary: Abraham Lincoln and the Soldiers' Home by Matthew Pinsker
Lincoln's Sanctuary: Abraham Lincoln and the Soldiers' Home

Syd, July 18, 2007

A little known part of the Lincoln presidency, before Camp David we had a summer White House in Washington--The Soldier's Home.
Matthew Pinsker has written a readable and worthy contribution to our understanding of Lincoln, the man and his family, during a time of crisis for our nation.

A must read for both layman and scholar.
