    Overview

    Summary
    "President Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the slogan 'The Arsenal of Democracy' to describe American might during the grim years of World War II. The man who financed that arsenal was his Secretary of the Treasury, Henry Morgenthau Jr. This is the first book to focus on the wartime achievements of this unlikely hero-- a dyslexic college dropout who turned himself into a forceful and efficient administrator and then exceeded even Roosevelt in his determination to defeat the Nazis." -- Provided by publisher.
