Standard operating procedure, as they used to say in the military. Averell Harriman was an investor in the Third Reich [along with the Rockefellers, Morgans, du Ponts, Ford, et cetera], so it stands to reason his subsequent behavior - - or is that real history? Averell Harriman's rebel-like, traitorous behavior in talks in Vietnam, ignoring the directives of his commander-in-chief and president, John F. Kennedy, was just about to have gotten him fired, save for JFK being assassinated! [Look at the present and all those defense industry consultants - - never properly identified - - who go on Fox and CNN and NPR, et cetera, pushing for war in Ukraine, war in the Middle East and on and on. Who profits, and follow the money, please?

If I could give 10 Stars, this is in the top five books I've read. The reader is excellent! Strictly my opinion. The writing is easy to follow and told very well. Some insightful additions I'd not been aware of which adds to the complexity of the era, how the people & the countries became what we are today. This was randomly selected & corresponded perfectly with the timing of Ken Burns 2014 film on the Roosevelt family. It could bore anyone not interested in history. Those who revile FDR might find added reasons even so many years later. Love him or hate him.
