Coming of age during World War I and attaining their finest hour in World War II and the Cold War, these men — FDR, Truman, Eisenhower, Marshall, MacArthur — transformed America from an isolated frontier nation into a global superpower. As he tells their stories, Fromkin, author of A Peace to End All Peace, shows how this generation not only made America great but largely succeeded in making it a force for good.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. [707]-756) and index.
