Jay Winik - 1944: FDR and the Year That Changed History

Monday, September 28, 2015 - 7:00pm to 8:00pm

What Winik did for the Civil War in his detailed focus on April 1865 he does on a larger and more complex scale in his third book, a close look at the penultimate year of World War II. As he traces events including FDR’s re-election, D-Day, and the Soviet liberation of the death camp at Majdanek, Winik, author also of The Great Upheaval and a frequent public speaker and media commentator, recreates the suspense of those moments, when the course of events was anything but clear and the outcome of many pivotal battles and decisions could as well have taken history in a different direction.
