Cross, Robert F.:
Sailor in the Whitehouse - new book

ISBN: 9781557503183

This behind-the-scenes look at Franklin D. Roosevelt's extraordinary skill as a blue-water sailor explores how FDR's love of the sea shaped his approach to public service and even influenced the course of events in World War II. Family and friends, Secret Service agents, and others reveal never-before-told stories of their days afloat with America's greatest seafaring president, including how he escaped injury when fire broke out aboard his small schooner, how ships were modified to accommodate his disability, and details of his wartime ocean rendezvous with Winston Churchill. Sailing pals discuss his abilities as a skipper along with his enjoyment of an evening cocktail at sea during the days of Prohibition. Letters and other documents illustrate how the sea was never far from Roosevelt's thoughts. Robert Cross examines Roosevelt's great affection for the sea in the context of an era dominated by the Great Depression and two world wars. While some criticized Roosevelt for taking too many seagoing tripshe lagged hundreds of thousands of miles at sea and was sometimes out of touch with the White House and the Secret Service for hoursFDR was quick to explain that his lengthy voyages allowed him to personally assess the world situation instead of relying solely upon White House briefing books. The author argues that the skills required to be a good sailor have much in common with those needed to be a successful politician: the ability to alter courses, make compromises, and shift positions as the situation warrants. Cross describes FDR as a master at dealing with the unexpected, allowing him to excel in the Navy Department, the governor's mansion, and the White House, as well as the open sea. From luxury ocean liners and presidential yachts to submarines and kayaks, this book lists all of the vessels on which FDR sailed and includes some never-before-published photographs. Biography & Autobiography Biography & Autobiography eBook Explores how Roosevelt's love of the sea and skills as a sailor shaped his approach to public service and even influenced the course of events in World War II.

Now available in paperback, Robert F. Cross' Sailor in the White House remains one of the most interesting and intimate books about Franklin D. Roosevelt. Secret Service agents, family, and old sailing pals share stories about their days on the water with America's greatest seafaring president. The author argues that the skills required to be a good sailor are the same skills that made FDR a successful politician: the ability to alter courses, make compromises, and shift positions as the situation warrants. This perspective on Roosevelt shows how his love of the sea shaped his presidency, and its unique look remains refreshing even today. 20th century,biographies,historical,history,leaders and notable people,modern (16th-21st centuries),presidents and heads of state Biographies, Naval Institute Press
