      More of a 3.5 an entertaining and interesting read with some really strong sections, especially on isolationism and fascist sympathizers in the city before Pearl Harbor, but overall it jumps around a lot and is a little lacking in a firm through line that draws conclusions about New York City s distinct role in World War II.

      I had to give up on this book about a third of the way through, unfortunately It was essentially an avalanche of mini biographies of all the important people in the city government officials, business moguls, society types, etc It was just too choppy for me I had been hoping for of a macrocosm perspective, chronicling the experiences of all the groups in the city during the war More of an average New Yorker take That would certainly have been relatable I also would have appr I had to give up on [...]

    6. Sarah Pick on said:

      It is full of interesting information, but it kept skipping around and it was difficult to follow.
