|Meet the Author - Nigel Hamilton presents "The Mantle of Command: FDR at War, 1941 - 1942" |
Monday, June 23, 2014
5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
US Freedom Pavilion: The Boeing Center
5:00 pm Reception | 6:00 pm Presentation and Q&A | 7:15 pm Book Signing
Join The National WWII Museum for a Meet the Author event featuring a close, in-the-room look at how President Roosevelt took masterful command and control of the Second World War, from wresting key decisions away from Churchill and his own generals, to launching the first successful trial landing in North Africa, and beginning to turn the tide away from the Axis.
Based on years of archival research and interviews with FDR's last surviving aides and family members, The Mantle of Command offers an in-depth account of FDR's consummate - and underappreciated - command of the Allied war effort...and it comes at a perfect time. June 6, 2014 marked the 70th anniversary of D-Day, the defining battle of World War II, which Hamilton argues, FDR, as US Commander in Chief, ordered to take place-overruling Winston Churchill (who was dead set against the landings), and appointing a US Supreme Commander to head the operation, Dwight Eisenhower.
This event is free and open to the public, but registration is appreciated. Please call 504-528-1944 for more information.
