The story of the greatest "team of rivals" since the days of Lincoln. In a lifetime shaped by politics, President Franklin D. Roosevelt proved himself a master manipulator. But when war in Europe and Asia threatened America's shores, FDR found himself in a world turned upside down, where his friends became his foes, his enemies his allies. To help wage democracy's first "total war," he turned to one of history's most remarkable triumvirates. Henry Stimson, an old-money Republican from Long Island, rallied to FDR's banner to lead the Army as Secretary of War, and championed innovative weapons that shape our world today. General George C. Marshall argued with Roosevelt over grand strategy, but he built the world's greatest war machine and willingly sacrificed his dream of leading the invasion of Europe that made his protégé, Dwight Eisenhower, a legend. Admiral Ernest J. King, a hard-drinking, irascible fighter who "destroyed" Pearl Harbor in a prewar naval exercise, understood how to fight Japan, but he also battled the Army, the Air Force, Douglas MacArthur, and his British allies as they moved armies and fleets across the globe. These commanders threw off sparks whenever they clashed: generals against politicians, Army versus Navy--but during four years of bitter warfare, FDR's lieutenants learned to set aside deep personal, political, and professional differences and pull a nation through the twentieth century's darkest days.-- From publisher description

"With the outbreak of the greatest war the world had ever seen, American Soldiers and the war-fighting materials supporting them spread slowly over the face of the planet, waging a total war, involving not only the hard-fighting men on the front lines, but also the industrial might of the United States. American strategic decision-makers during World War II directed everything from the operations of the massive assembly lines turning out tanks, aircraft, and artillery shells to the boots on the ground. A handful of men made these decisions, forced to balance politics and economics against military necessity. Author Jonathan W. Jordan gives a lecture showing how personality, politics, and the professional backgrounds of America's top leaders shaped the grand strategy in mankind's greatest military conflict. Focusing on the four main subjects of his book, American Warlords -- a liberal Democrat, a conservative Republican, a bipartisan general, and an apolitical admiral -- Jordan describes how decision-makers of the United States' high command set aside fundamental differences and pulled together when their country needed them most. As the Second World War turned into a total war, President Franklin D. Roosevelt found his ability to expertly deal with Congress and the press did not translate into running a conflict on such a grand scale. He turned to his high command, a three-sided team in constant, but effective, conflict with each other and all of the Allies' powerful players. The team included Secretary of War Henry Stimson, whose forward thinking pushed new weapons and industry, General George C. Marshall, who built the Army that saved the world, and Admiral Ernest J. King, who handled the Japanese, General MacArthur, and the British to conduct a campaign in the Pacific which resulted in unconditional victory. The triumvirate was by no means without conflict: Soldiers and politicians clashed as the Army and Navy learned to work together. Despite the trials, the team set aside personal, political, and professional differences to lead America and the Allies through four years of bitter, unrelenting warfare and ultimately, to victory"--Video home page
