Product Details


“A fine account of one of the most famous opponents to America’s entrance into World War II…Another winner from Brands.”Kirkus Reviews *starred review*

“Brands’s elegant account of the political faceoff between Franklin Roosevelt and Charles Lindbergh could not be more timely.  This book sheds fascinating new light on Roosevelt’s battle against the tenacious efforts of the America First movement to keep the United States far away from World War II. In so doing, it provides critical historical insight into the heated debate currently building between internationalists and today’s America First isolationists.”—Charles A. Kupchan, Georgetown University and Council on Foreign Relations, author of Isolationism: A History of America’s Efforts to Shield Itself from the World

America First is a gripping historical tale of how two towering figures, Charles Lindbergh and Franklin Delano Roosevelt, debated the wisdom of America entering World War II. The narrative echoes, and should inform, today’s debate America’s role in the world, as today’s proponents of ‘America First’ seek to undo what FDR accomplished: Placing America at the center for the world stage.”—Ivo Daalder, Chicago Council on Global Affairs and former U.S. Ambassador to NATO
