Infamy to Victory: FDR as Commander in Chief in World War II
Monday, June 12, 2023
On December 7, 1941, the United States - ranked 17th in the world in military power at the time – was unexpectedly plunged into World War II. A grueling 1,365 days later we emerged as the world's first Superpower. This presentation outlines how Franklin Roosevelt’s leadership addressed some of the major challenges to win victory in a global war, bringing us from a ‘day of infamy’ to ‘absolute victory’.
