Roosevelt's Secret War by Joseph E. Persico

Book Description

Roosevelt's Secret War presents a whole new perspective on the full panorama of World War II. We learn how Roosevelt personally set up the first presidential spy ring and sent his close friend Vincent Astor on an intelligence mission. We discover what FDR really knew about Pearl Harbor. There's a whole chapter on moles in the White House, people spying on Roosevelt and the United States - and the surprising account of whom Roosevelt actually told about the A-bomb. These are just a few of the literally hundreds of revelations in this fresh and substantial - and constantly surprising - look at Roosevelt and his major role in the hidden history of the Second War.
