Описание: The vivid voices that speak from these pages are not those of historians or scholars. They are the voices of ordinary men and women who experienced—and helped to win—the most devastating war in history, in which between 50 and 60 million lives were lost. Focusing on the citizens of four towns—Luverne, Minnesota; Sacramento, California; Waterbury, Connecticut; Mobile, Alabama—"The War" follows more than forty people from 1941 to 1945. Woven largely from their memories, the compelling, unflinching narrative unfolds month by bloody month, with the outcome always in doubt. All the iconic events are here, from Pearl Harbor to the liberation of the concentration camps—but we also move among prisoners of war and Japanese American internees, defense workers and schoolchildren, and families who struggled simply to stay together while their men were shipped off to Europe, the Pacific, and North Africa. Enriched by maps and hundreds of photographs, including many never published before, this is an intimate, profoundly affecting chronicle of the war that shaped our world.

Описание: In 1994, along with the PBS series, Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns's "Baseball" captured the beauty and complexity of America's national pastime and became an instant classic. Now, to coincide with the PBS broadcast of a new two-part "Tenth Inning" episode, this expanded edition--including a new chapter by historian and novelist Kevin Baker--brings the monumental work into the turbulent twenty-first century, from the 1994 strike to the extraordinary homerun race of 1998 to Barry Bonds and the steroid age, and beyond.

Описание: New York Times Bestseller A vivid and personal portrait of America s greatest political family and its enormous impact on our nation, which expands on the hugely acclaimed seven-part PBS documentary series, bringing readers even deeper into these extraordinary leaders lives With 796 photographs, some never before seen The authors of the acclaimed and best-selling "The Civil War, Jazz, The War, "and" Baseball "present an intimate history of three extraordinary individuals from the same extraordinary family Theodore, Eleanor, and Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Geoffrey C. Ward, distilling more than thirty years of thinking and writing about the Roosevelts, and the acclaimed filmmaker Ken Burns help us understand for the first time that, despite the fierce partisanship of their eras, the Roosevelts were far more united than divided. All the history the Roosevelts made is here, but this is primarily an intimate account, the story of three people who overcame obstacles that would have undone less forceful personalities. Theodore Roosevelt would push past childhood frailty, outpace depression, survive terrible grief and transform the office of the presidency. Eleanor Roosevelt, orphaned and alone as a child, would endure her husband s betrayal, battle her own self-doubts, and remake herself into the most consequential first lady in American history and the most admired woman on earth. And Franklin Roosevelt, born to privilege and so pampered that most of his youthful contemporaries dismissed him as a charming lightweight, would summon the strength to lead the nation through the two greatest crises since the Civil War, though he could not take a single step unaided. The three were towering personalities, but "The Roosevelts "shows that they were also flawed human beings who confronted in their personal lives issues familiar to all of us: anger and the need for forgiveness, courage and cowardice, confidence and self-doubt, loyalty to family and the need to be true to oneself. This is the story of the Roosevelts no other American family ever touched so many lives."
