    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFQuite enjoyed learning about a part of Roosevelt's formative years I knew almost nothing about The author makes a convincing case that Roosevelt's time in the Navy was formative for how he conducted his presidency and the US during WWII

    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFOkay Something of a mix of potted biography and a discussion of Roosevelt's experience as assistant secretary of the Navy from 1913 to 1920 The author obviously is a major admirer of Roosevelt and of big government It's not particularly insightful the treatment is superficial the author's historical judgment isn't very keen and the sources are limited As an instance of the sort of shallow historical judgment we get things like several pages of Roosevelt's affability humor and good sense in his first electoral campaign in 1910 but then we're told that he was an arrogant young man apparently on the basis of Frances Perkins' reminiscences published in 1946 Who could put any faith in such a source especially when it conflicts with all the facts we've actually been given?

    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFI picked this up because it seemed curious that someone would write about FDR's Navy instead of that of Teddy Roosevelt The part leading up to FDR becoming Asst Secnav was truly awful I almost closed the book Besides any FDR fan knows plenty about his time in that office his problems with Wilson and Josephus Daniels and the start of the famous Lucy Mercer affair Had I noticed the author's bio I would have realized that a naval historian would have many not so common but fascinating things to say From this book we see FDR's 10 version of Lend Lease and his complete understanding of all things Navy We also see his own experiences putting distance between his ideas and those of h

    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFThere are an number of good biographies of FDRand all cover this period of his life But in the main they tend to give this period short shrift in favor of his Presidential years This book takes a different look focusing on how his work in the Navy Department influenced his growth as an administrator and the lessons he learned from observing others The Assistant Secretary of the Navy there was only one during those years was a highly responsible job for one of his years and he proved to be highly capable Anyone with an interest in Roosevelt or Naval history will enjoy this highly readable book

    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFNice overview of FDR's early life and career While it is clear the influences his time as asst Naval Secretary had on his political development the book feels like it is making a strong casual argument that his experiences directly led to his future political stances The story seems too simplistic

    Roosevelts Navy ePUB ¼ Hardcover roosevelts kindle, navy pdf, Roosevelts Navy PDFThis was an excellent book on FDR's less famous career before he got polio This career was quite similar to TR's His tour of Verdun during WWI provided him with the wisdom that war was hell and not the romantic version of TR's
