THOSE ANGRY DAYS
Roosevelt, Lindbergh. And America’s Fight Over World War II, 1939-1941
THOSE ANGRY DAYS views the dark early years of World War II from the American side, as the country was divided into interventionist and isolation factions who fought in Washington, in the press, and even in the streets to express their vehement convictions.
THOSE ANGRY DAYS brings to life the nail-biting suspense of the period: as Britain alone battled Germany's overwhelming forces, it was an open question whether America would wake up in time to mobilize for war and respond to Churchill's pleas for aid before it was too late. No one has yet written a book focusing on this important and dramatic two year turning point of American history, and who better than Lynne Olson? CITIZENS OF LONDON spent 5 weeks on the New York Times extended bestseller list, and has netted nearly 50,000 copies in combined hardcover and ebook. Here, Olson has once again produced an accessible and entertaining narrative history, told vividly through larger-than-life characters.
Lynne Olson is a former White House correspondent for the Baltimore Sun. Prior to CITIZENS OF LONDON, she wrote TROUBLESOME YOUNG MEN: The Rebels Who Brought Churchill to Power and Helped Save England (published here by FSG and in the UK by Bloomsbury); and FREEDOM’S DAUGHTERS:The Unsung Heroines of the Civil Rights Movement from 1830 to 1970, and is also the coauthor of two other books.
