Sachbuch / 20. Jahrhundert (bis 1945)


In America in the Forties, Goldberg energetically argues that the decade of the 1940s was one of the most influential in American his­tory: a period marked by war, sacrifice, and profound social changes. With superb detail, Goldberg traces the entire decade from the first stirrings of war in a nation consumed by the Great Depression to the conflicts with Europe and Japan to the start of the Cold War and the dawn of the atomic age. Richly drawn portraits of the pe­riod's charismatic, brilliant, and often controversial leaders-Frank­lin Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Harry Truman-demonstrate their immense importance in shaping the era and, in turn, the course of American government, politics, and society. Goldberg chronicles U.S. heroic accomplishments during World War II and the early Cold War, showing how these military and diplomatic achievements helped lay the foundation for the country's current role in economic and military affairs worldwide.

Combining an engrossing narrative with intelligent analysis, America in the Forties enriches our understanding of that pivotal era.
