America: how well do you know your history? Which president was willing to have "France" written over his dead body? What was the first movie ever shown in the White House? Whose sleek, black, silent train was code named Amerika? Which presidential candidate was described as "the little man on the wedding cake"? In his Farewell Address, Ronald Reagan said that if we forget what we have done, we will forget who we are. Like the previous volume of America: The Last Best Hope, Volume II responds to Reagan's heartfelt call for an informed patriotism, telling the riveting story of the last century's great wars, the rise of world Communism, the struggle of freedom at home and abroad, and the triumph of liberty.
