How Franklin D. Roosevelt and Five Extraordinary Men Took America into the War and into the World

Michael Fullilove, Author, Rendezvous with Destiny; Executive Director, the Lowy Institute in Sydney, Australia; Nonresident Senior Fellow, the Brookings Institution

Fullilove tells the remarkable untold story of the five special envoys sent by Franklin Roosevelt on dramatic and often dangerous missions to Europe in the lead-up to the U.S. entry into WWII. Taken together, their missions plot the arc of our nation's transformation from a reluctant middle power into the global leader. Leading historian and foreign policy scholar Fullilove tells the story of these missions and their relevance for U.S. foreign policy today.
