American Warriors: Five Presidents in the Pacific Theater of World War II

Availability: Out of stock

By Duane T. Hove

Five years of research, interviews with veterans, and detailed use of primary documents have resolved controversial issues and filled in gaps in historical accounts of the presidents' military service.

Five United States presidents served their country as Naval Reserve officers in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Presidential biographies gloss over this important period of their lives and are often inaccurate. American Warriors reconstructs the presidents' wartime roles based on interviews with more than 100 veterans and on primary sources such as action reports, ships' logs, war diaries, and letters.
