    schema:description "These three legendary figures - Franklin Roosevelt, Cordell Hull, and Sumner Welles - not only concealed such secrets for more than a decade but did so while directing U.S. foreign policy during some of the most perilous events in the nation's history."@en ;
    schema:description "Gellman concludes that although Roosevelt, Hull, and Welles usually agreed on foreign policy matters, the events that molded each man's character remained a mystery to others. Their failure to cope with their secret affairs - to subordinate their personal concerns to the higher good of the nation - eventually destroyed much of what they hoped would be their legacy. Roosevelt never explained his objectives to Vice-President Harry Truman or anyone else."@en ;

The secretary of state was old and frail, debilitated by a highly contagious and usually fatal disease that was as closely guarded a state secret as his wife's Jewish ancestry. The under secretary was a pompous and aloof man who married three times but, when intoxicated, preferred sex with railroad porters, shoeshine boys, and cabdrivers."@en ;
