Mr. Persico talked about his book, Roosevelt’s Secret War: FDR and World War II Espionage, published by Random House. He talked about an overlooked aspect of FDR’s wartime leadership: his involvement in intelligence and espionage operations, including the founding of the intelligence service. He details how much President Roosevelt had been told, before the Holocaust, about the coming fate of Europe’s Jews and provides his answer to the question: Did the president know in advance about the attack on Pearl Harbor? Mr. Persico also talked about Secretary of State Colin Powell and his national security and military experience. Mr. Persico co-wrote General Powell’s autobiography. close
