In the Time of the Americans


Author: David Fromkin

Within a few years of each other in the 1880s five Americans were born who would play large parts in leading the way toward a new balance of global power - away from Europe in favour of the United States - over the course of the first and second world wars and beyond. These men had been born into a political world dominated by Europe. When their careers were complete no nation could match American influence politically, economically and militarily. This is a major work of popular history by the acclaimed author of A Peace to End All Peace. David Fromkin brings a sparkling fluency and storytelling instinct to the wonderfully large narrative and the characters who form its story - Roosevelt, Truman, Eisenhower, Marshall and MacArthur.


Well Read - We do our best to ensure the quality of our books, but there is no escaping the wear and tear that comes with time. Pages might be yellowing or largely annotated, with some foxing on the exterior of the book. This is a well-read book, but this also means that the previous owner probably really enjoyed it! This category also includes books that are heavily annotated but are otherwise in a clean condition without brown spots.
