"Right from the very beginning and he put under the charge of the secretary of war. Henry enrich stints but you know he walked over Very Kathleen as was developed and and was buried about the implications because he invited to the White House. Many of the main participants scientists involved in including Neal's boy who was quite open about what an old for weapon this would be very much hoped that it would be necessary to use it and that was one of the reasons why at Tehran around he was so concerned to get Stalin to agree to enter the war against Japan were neutral towards Japan and couldn't afford a war on two fronts themselves so they were manning but started did agree that the moment Hitler was defeated the Russians moved into the war in in Japan and in truth they Russians forever million men into Manchuria so he wasn't in the seat for anything anything stood by his oil I think if the against hope that would be possible to get the Japanese it to surrender affort having either to launch an amphibious invasion of the Japanese islands all aw in the end to use the atomic. I I think myself jury's out as to whether Tokyo speculative est of whether would counterfactual history but I think he would have hesitated to use it if except me once so the the casualties from the invasion volcano it was clear that Japanese were not any defending to the last man the last soldier that they were actually forcing Japanese civilians to permits side at Kapp idea the Americans gave me and so I I think had he had he not died. I'm pretty show ultimately he probably would've used the at Monroe uh-huh but in that sense it was by dying in April of nineteen forty five four it has proved that would actually he was that terrible decision which credit icing Harry Truman nobly tool right now one of the things you you wrote about also is the creation of the United Nations. FDR's the plan to prevent another world war what was he trying to accomplish out Yalta with regards to the United Nations well they had already had had the United Nations was very much. FBI ause notion he'd Beaten Assistant Secretary of the Navy in World War One and the world one who'd been invested by the time I signed treaty and the failure of the United States is to join the League of nations have doomed prospects for peace after terrible like were the one who who was snuggie determine that that shouldn't be repeated and therefore there should be some wanNA use the woods League of nations nations because by tainted fluids so he invented festival the United Nations for those countries who we're fighting the Japanese but then he decided that he should be once the the end of the war came. It should be an organization. would be cool. The United Nations would have where every country would be able to participate in have a representative so -at's Yalta Yalta although he was so desperately sick. I mean manager few hours a day. He was just determined. Russians uh-huh agreed to participate in them the United Nations for genetic even if it meant giving them more seat for representatives representatives than than they were in the United States began just George joys better than wool oh right right so it. I think it's one of his again wannabees great achievements who did get actions to sign up to it and and the Russians are still part of the United Nations overnight station but the other thing was he felt that the United Nations as such would be great token or the and will do great things. Perhaps in education will help us to you in the end. Somebody would have to be the guardians of will security especially if it was at the atom bombs. I'm so he felt they should be some kind of world old A. and so he felt the United Nations should be willing to you operate at military level through the kind of senior countries of the world. The United it states great British Empire China and than France as well and if they had a sub committee of those nations would be able to defuse views critical or crisis real crisis humphries invading each other would piece not necessarily in the most locals saints piece in the largest sense who be maintained he hoped for for about he hoped for fifty years half a century in. I think we could say I would argue that historian that has survive longer than possible. the seventy years now we now have with the president in a political situation in which that is being called into question how motion of those kind of coalitionism core reported elliptical agreements major countries mm tris to preserve world peace so. I don't know whether it will continue. I think we can just blew back and be incredibly great folded gem. He had the vision to see that and although he's criticized by giving too much away to actions uh-huh is which is sad is double cases I think you have to look at the positive side and and what he did manage to get the Soviets to agree to who had a completely different Beijing society sleep and and who needs old I think it was a tremendous achieve. He probably more or nice killed him. Because Act from yellow is semblance. Yeah my my theory which is debatable like any theory is that Roosevelt saw the UN as one of its many purposes away to permanently get America engaged in the in the world so they wouldn't turn back to the isolation EST policies because many Americans felt that that had allowed how'd you know the United States was kind of asleep at the wheel and couldn't play a role balancing the aggressive nations you know the Japanese and the Germans and so it seems like the UN was kind of an ends to a mean in that sense to prevent another war through America's presence and engagements intruments Europe's they write and I quote a number of people who who like employ who discuss its with with the president and of course six theme that runs right through the book right from the very first from the mental of command in nineteen hundred one where the president you know to the draft selected Linford service in America a continuation of the draft which in passed by Congress is I'm. The repast is just before puddle Haba by one vote right power elation is in this country was tremendous is a lot of inertia in the store owner. Sha Falling back into that. You touched upon. FDR's decisions regarding Poland at Yalta and obviously you know that's a source of controversy as well as his the way he handled Marshal Stalin. What are your views on that on. How people historians have viewed that and whether they've looked at at at fairly or unfairly well? I think there are no secrets Dan there were secrets protocols attached to the ultra coach. Trim but I- nowadays there is a secret about it and Winston Churchill and President Roosevelt knew that sterling had the boots on the ground and that if Stalin insisted own moving the Polish order Westwood's there wasn't much he could do to stop him up on the same with Finland into French territory tree and nobody ever talks about that today by Poland has a special places himself in because Britain had declared war on thankless because of the Nazi invasion of Poland and and so again i. I just don't think there's any secret about it. I think it was just an impossible task for the United States all oh Great Britain to stop turn style in from Japan and then pretty much deciding writing what would happen there. you know that's terribly sad to say. There were people who felt at the time. The president was just being was sort of making nice with star but I I I don't really see him as that I as doing that. I think he is very well aware and I quoted a number of go. It's worth kee aware how awful the Soviet system as the water in a prison camp it is he feels over time it will gradually improve mood in the meantime regularly can do other than to try and kind of Joliet along and at least not naught it into fight basically given the cold eventuated that he's he's actually more often than going to fights in different places like that concern given the largest since peace was maintained especially nuclear Tony Pins and and it's sad that became a corn in that but now I I really don't see it was any real alternative will set off molten anybody that anybody else could have enacted now obviously so much has been written about President Roosevelt but yours look in depth look into his his time as commander in chief during the war after writing your trilogy. What is the main thing you want people to take away about President Roosevelt that they didn't know before I think I consider it very simply. We knew he was a great statesman. We knew he was a great domestic president in terms of them tickling the Great Depression and the new deal I. I don't think we knew that he was the the greatest strategies World War Two and possibly the greatest strategist military strategists that the United States the most affected military stashed status demanded states has produced in its his very strong thesis now before four. It's up to read his decide whether they agree sure sure now before I let you go. I think you earlier you mentioned that. When you met Field Marshal Montgomery you also had a chance to meet Winston Churchill as well Yes yes. I told you earlier on compensation that I I was invited with Monty to chop well weeks home in Kent Countryside and I spent several days there. We can't church. I I have to ask you how what was that like. I mean especially in light of what you've written about him and his strengths and his and his failures during the in the in this book so what what was that like that must have been an incredible experience it was I mean for one thing. He was tiny think he's he's sort of. nominal. L. Height was five foot six but you know by now how many this is like nineteen sixty or by that time in his life. He probably five foot three. Wow shrunk a lot turnover. Had the most beautiful schemes people speculated eighteen what what special medications he would take the a lot of young lambs also because but I don't think that's true I think he was born with incredible.
