Another 'War' book dealing mainly with the 'behind the scenes 'maneuvering/politicking of the principals involved, in this case the 'Big Four', although Leahy being in England was not really involved. Again, F. Roosevelt had his hands full managing these huge egos but did a masterful job at this.

OK somewhat dry.. Neptune's Inferno was better.
