summary × E-book, or Kindle E-pub ´ Michael R. Beschloss The Conuerors Roosevelt Truman the Destruction of Hitler's Germany 1941 45 review ê 9 E plan had cost lives The Conuerors explores suspicions that Soviet agents manipulated FDR his officials to do Stalin's bidding on Germany It reveals new information on FDR's illnesses how they affected his leadership his private talk about uitting his job during his 4th term It shows FDR's final dinner in 445 in Warm Springs GA at which he Morgenthau were still arguing over postwar Germany Finally it shows how an unprepared new president managed to pick up the pieces push Stalin Churchill to accede to a bargain that would let the Anglo Americans block Soviet threats against Western Europe ensure the world wouldn't have to fear another Hitle. This book was a deep disappointment The subtitle Roosevelt Truman and the Destruction of Hitler s Germany 1941 1945 is a deception Only in a footnote two thirds into the book is the reader actually told this book is concerned with Roosevelt s and Truman s wartime statecraft on postwar Germany The first half of the book covers the years 1943 until Roosevelt s death in April 1945 the Roosevelt years But very little of it is about Roosevelt but rather about the Secretary of the Treasury Henry Morgenthau and Morgenthau s obsession with punishing Germany after the war Historically this was a trivial issue carrying no weight after the war and it defies logic that Beschloss essentially wastes the time of the reader Roosevelt had little interest in developing a detailed post surrender policy for Germany being content to allow facts on the ground to define US policy and Roosevelt was not about to repeat the mistakes of Versailles Anyone who saw Roosevelt in the early months of 1945 knew he was dying Plus Soviet aggression in Europe after the German surrender dictated US policy to support rebuild and re arm Germany in the face of Russian aggression Dedicating the first half of a history book to the trivial in fighting s of the administration in the year before the war ended over post surrender Germany policy was simply irritating But worse Beschloss tells absolutely nothing about Roosevelt as war leader and de jur Commander in Chief of the Western Allies For that incredible story I refer you to Nigel Hamilton s superb three volume work FDR at War as of this writing in October 2017 the third volume is yet to be published All judgement and commentary by the author is reserved for the final chapter The initial 90% is rattled out in a just the facts Ma am manor I do not recommend this book 10 4 2017
