By Doris Kearns Goodwin, No Ordinary Time: Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt: The Homefront in World War II. No ordinary time is historian Doris Kearns Goodwin’s classic Pulitzer Prize winning narrative of a nation and its leaders during the period when modern America was created. It describes how the United States in 1940, still suffering from the ravages of a decade long depression and woefully unprepared for war, was unified by a common threat and by the extraordinary leadership of Franklin D Roosevelt to become, five years later, the preeminent economic and military power in the world. Goodwin paints a detailed, intimate portrait not only of the presidency during war time but the complex partnership a Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt and their friends, advisers, and family, many of whom livde in the White House.
