Summary

"To Robert Beir, Roosevelt was a hero. At an early age the author became a "Rooseveltian." In mid-life however, Beir experienced a conflict. New research was questioning Roosevelt's record regarding the Holocaust. The author felt compelled to undertake a historian's quest. How much did President Roosevelt know about the Holocaust? What could Roosevelt have done? Why wasn't there an urgent rescue effort?"--BOOK JACKET.
