New book on FDR and the Sea
Sailor in the White House: The Seafaring Life of FDR
is a new book written by Robert Cross and is a behind the scenes look at
Franklin D. Roosevelts extraordinary skill as a sailor explores how FDRs
love of the sea shaped his approach to public service and even influenced the
course of events in World War II. Cross' book examines how the skills required
to be a good sailor had much in common with those needed to be a successful
politician which FDR employed. Cross describes FDR as a master at
dealing with the unexpected, allowing him to excel in the Navy Department,
the governors mansion, and the White House, as well as on the open sea. Robert
Cross is an award-winning newspaper correspondent who has spent more than a
decade exploring FDRs love of the sea. He is currently water commissioner
for the City of Albany and supervises operations at the Port of Albany.
