My American journey by Colin L Powell ( Book )
59 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in 8 languages and held by 5,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Colin Powell is the embodiment of the American dream. Born in Harlem to immigrant parents, he knew the rough life of the streets. He overcame a barely average start at school. Then he joined the Army. The rest is history -- but a history that until now has been known only on the surface. Here, for the first time, he tells us how it happened, in a memoir distinguished by a heartfelt love of country and family, warm good humor, and a soldier's directness
Roosevelt's secret war : FDR and World War II espionage by Joseph E Persico ( Book )
18 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in English and held by 2,148 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Despite all that has already been written on Franklin Delano Roosevelt, Joseph Persico has uncovered a hitherto overlooked dimension of FDR's wartime leadership: his involvement in intelligence and espionage operations." "Roosevelt's Secret War also describes how much FDR had been told - before the Holocaust - about the coming fate of Europe's Jews. And Persico also provides a definitive answer to the perennial question: Did FDR know in advance about the attack on Pearl Harbor?"--Jacket

15 editions published between 2008 and 2013 in English and held by 1,686 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In Franklin and Lucy, acclaimed author and historian Joseph E. Persico explores FDR's romance with Lucy Rutherfurd (which was far deeper and lasted much longer than was previously acknowledged). Persico also shows how FDR's infidelity as a husband contributed to Eleanor's eventual transformation from a repressed Victorian to perhaps the greatest American woman of her century; how the shaping hand of FDR's strong-willed mother helped to imbue him with the resolve to overcome personal and public adversity throughout his life; and how other women around FDR, including his "surrogate spouse," Missy LeHand, and his close confidante, the obscure Margaret "Daisy" Suckley, completed the world that he inhabited.--From amazon.com
