“The Hopkins Touch: Harry Hopkins and the Forging of the Alliance to Defeat Hitler” by David Roll was published in 2013. Roll is a senior partner at Steptoe & Johnson (a DC-based law firm) and previously served as Assistant Director of the Federal Trade Commission. He is also the author of a biography of General George Marshall which I read earlier this year.
Readers acquainting themselves with Franklin Roosevelt invariably become enamored with two people central to FDR’s orbit: Eleanor Roosevelt and Harry Hopkins. I read David Michaelis’s biography of Eleanor shortly after its release in 2020. And I’ve finally gotten around to this somewhat older – and marvelously compelling – biography of FDR’s closest political advisor.
