Few American presidents have exercised the constitutional authority of Commander in Chief with such determination and in such detail as Franklin D. Roosevelt during World War II. Commander in Chief is the story of FDR's war as it has never been told before -- a full-size picture of how he ran it, picked his key military leaders, and arranged events so that the Grand Alliance was directed from Washington. Individual chapters describe Roosevelt's relations with George C. Marshall, Ernest Joseph King, Henry Harley "Hap" Arnold, Archer Vandegrift, Douglas MacArthur, Chester W. Nimitz, Dwight D. Eisenhower, Joseph Warren Stilwell, and Curtis E. LeMay. - Publisher.
