    Overview

    Summary
    Starting in his boyhood, Lyndon B. Johnson developed a better than average understanding of foreign affairs. The training of his relatives, his studies of diplomatic history, and reading deepened this knowledge. LBJ's sophisticated view of Hitler and Nazism from 1934 onward moved Johnson to work, prior to and during World War II, to save European Jews from what became the Holocaust. Analyzing his friendships with top foreign-policy decisionmakers beginning with FDR, Johnson's personal experiences in congressional committees that focused on national security as well as during the war overseas, his speeches, and his voting record, proves that LBJ possessed a solid knowledge of foreign affairs, and was acting on that knowledge, but usually behind the scenes, for a decade before he became a Senator.
