Duel : Alexander Hamilton, Aaron Burr, and the future of America by Thomas J Fleming( Book )
4 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 1,426 libraries worldwide
In this retelling of the fatal duel between Hamilton and Burr, historian Fleming takes the reader into the post-revolutionary world of 1804, a chaotic and fragile time in the young country as well as a time of tremendous global instability. The success of the French Revolution and the proclamation of Napoleon as First Consul for Life had enormous impact on men like Hamilton and Burr, feeding their own political fantasies at a time of perceived Federal government weakness and corrosion. Their hunger for fame spawned antagonisms that wreaked havoc on themselves and their families and threatened to destabilize the fragile young American republic. From that poisonous brew came the tangle of regret and anger and ambition that drove the two to their murderous confrontation in Weehawken, New Jersey. This is authoritative history at its most readable.--From publisher description

The New Dealers' war : Franklin D. Roosevelt and the war within World War II by Thomas J Fleming( Book )
4 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 1,096 libraries worldwide
"Solidly challenging the idea that World War II was a "good war," The New Dealers' War offers a drastically new look at the conflict that has dominated the history of the twentieth century. For many Americans, Franklin Delano Roosevelt's role in leading the United States throughout most of World War II has made him one of America's most venerated presidents. Biographers have all but lionized FDR for his war leadership, a tendency that has been reinforced lately as Americans celebrate the riches of memory by saluting the generation that won that titanic global conflict with blockbuster movies and best-selling books. But, as Thomas Fleming reminds us, memory is not history, and in The New Dealers' War, he reveals an entirely different Roosevelt from the one that most people like to remember." "Unquestionably, The New Dealers' War is one of those rare books that will force readers to rethink what they think they know about one of the most pivotal events in the American past. It will surely spark debate about FDR's role in shaping the course of history in the twentieth century."--Jacket

The illusion of victory : America in World War I by Thomas J Fleming( Book )
10 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 954 libraries worldwide
"In this book, acclaimed historian Thomas Fleming undertakes nothing less than a drastic revision of America's experience in World War I. He reveals how the British and French duped Wilson and the American people into thinking the war was as good as won, and there would be no need to send an army overseas. He describes a harried president making speech after speech proclaiming America's ideals while supporting the Espionage and Sedition Acts that sent critics to federal prisons. Meanwhile, a government propaganda machine created a hate-driven "war will" that soon spilled over into attacks on ethnic Americans. On the Western Front, the Allies did their utmost to turn the American Expeditionary Force into cannon fodder. At the Paris Peace Conference, the cynical Europeans mocked Wilson and his ideals, and browbeat him into accepting the vengeful Treaty of Versailles, sowing the seeds of World War II."--Jacket
