Nigel Hamilton's celebrated trilogy culminates with a story of triumph and tragedy. Just as FDR was proven right by the D-Day landings he had championed, so was he found to be mortally ill in the spring of 1944. He was the architect of a victorious peace that he would not live to witness. Using hitherto unpublished documents and interviews, Hamilton rewrites the famous account of World War II strategy given by Winston Churchill in his memoirs. Seventy-five years after the D-Day landings we finally get to see, close-up and in dramatic detail, who was responsible for rescuing - and insisting upon - the great American-led invasion of France in June 1944, and why the invasion was orchestrated by Eisenhower. As FDR's D-Day triumph turns to personal tragedy, we watch with heart breaking compassion the course of the disease that was to kill him. Hamilton describes how, in the months left him as US commander in chief, the dying president attempted at Hawaii, Quebec, and Yalta to prepare the United Nations for an American backed post-war world order. Nigel Hamilton reveals FDR as the great visionary, the one leader capable of bringing war to an end and who anticipated the requirements of the peace that was to be made.
