Outstanding. Meticulous examination of the Franklin - Eleanor relationship, the FDR-Churchill dynamics, life in DC and in the White House during this time, and a thread that highlights changes in US attitudes and social mores during (and because of) the war.

I have yet to find a book that does a good job of depicting the Home Front as it was for 'normal' people in the US...like my mother and her sisters...while so many of the boys were off to war. That is the book I'd love to read.
