Advance praise forThose Angry Days
 
“With this stirring book, Lynne Olson confirms her status as our era’s foremost chronicler of World War II politics and diplomacy.Those Angry Daystells the extraordinary tale of America’s internal debate about whether and how to stop Hitler. Filled with fascinating anecdotes and surprising twists, the text raises moral and practical questions that we still struggle with today. Compelling for students of history and casual readers alike.”—Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
 
“Lynne Olson has done it again.Those Angry Daysis a riveting account of the political tensions and cast of historic figures engaged in an epic battle over the role of the United States in the early years of World War II. It’s all here: FDR, Lindbergh, Churchill, Hitler, war in Europe and the Pacific. The stakes could not have been higher and the outcome was never certain. Modern leaders and citizens alike can learn so much fromThose Angry Days.”—Tom Brokaw, author ofThe Greatest Generation
 
“Deeply researched and scrupulously evenhanded, Lynne Olson’s groundbreaking history vividly captures a previously unexplored period of twentieth-century America. At its heart,Those Angry Daysis a gripping tale of the brutal battle between two larger-than-life antagonists, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh, but Olson’s compelling cast of characters includes numerous unsung heroes such as Britain’s Lord Lothian and defeated Republican presidential candidate Wendell Willkie. With fresh insights and riveting new details, Olson examines the shifting alliances and intrigues, the passions that divided families, and the compromises and campaigns that galvanized America to give vital assistance to Britain when it was threatened with massive defeat by Nazi Germany.”—Sally Bedell Smith, author ofElizabeth the Queen

“An exhilarating portrait of America’s growing pains in the years leading to World War II, Lynne Olson’sThose Angry Daysmakes a fine bookend to herCitizens of London. It shows a great democracy rallying to a great debate, one truly worthy of the stakes.”—Chris Matthews, anchor, MSNBC’sHardball,and author ofJack Kennedy: Elusive Hero
 
“I have been hugely impressed by Lynne Olson’s last two books, both of which were concerned more with Britain than America. WithThose Angry Daysshe is back on home ground, and has once again held me spellbound with her account of the terrifying days when the future of the free world depended on the U.S.A. She is incapable of writing a boring sentence; I would follow her anywhere.”—John Julius Norwich, author ofAbsolute Monarchs

review by . April 18, 2013
Books about World War II interest me very much, not only from the position of a History major enjoying reading about something from the past, but also because both my father and father-in-law fought (and survived) this conflict. I thought that I knew quite a bit about the times leading up to December 7, 1941, but after reading this book I can see that I was mistaken.      Most Americans are aware that there was strong opposition to the idea of the US getting involved in the war …
