No Ordinary Time Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt The Home Front in World War II

Doris Kearns Goodwin Ý 1 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS ✓ No Ordinary Time Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt The Home Front in World War II Winner of the Pulitzer for History No Ordinary Time is a chronicle of one of the most vibrant revolutionary periods in US history With an extraordinary collection of details Goodwin weaves together a number of story lines the Roosevelt’s marriage partnership Eleanor’s life as First Lady FDR’s White House its impact on America as well as on a world at war Goodwin melds these int. Doris Kearns Goodwin s No Ordinary Time is an unusual World War II book There are no descriptions of clashing armies no in depth armchair analyses of battlefield strategies no biographical sketches of medal bedecked generals moving their men like so many pawns This is World War II as viewed from the American home front and specifically through the eyes of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt No Ordinary Time begins in 1940 as Nazi Germany invades France Luxembourg and the Low Countries ending the so called Sitzkrieg the period of inactivity following Great Britain s and France s declarations of war against the Third Reich It ends in 1945 with the death of President Roosevelt The events in between spoiler alert are momentous Some of the ground covered is standard for most World War II histories There is Roosevelt s struggle with the America First isolationist faction the initiation of a peace time draft and the famous Lend Lease bill that turned the United States into the Arsenal of Democracy Other topics though generally don t receive nearly enough attention Exhibit A is Goodwin s treatment of race and racism in 1940s America Black contributions to World War II are typically relegated to brief mentions of the admittedly illustrious Tuskegee Airmen What gets ignored is America s still segregated Army its still segregated Navy and the deplorable domestic treatment of blacks including black munitions workers Discrimination in the mushrooming defense industry continued unabated All over the country new war plants were refusing to hire blacks Negroes will considered only as janitors the general manager of North American Aviation publicly asserted It is the company policy not to employ them as mechanics and aircraft workers In Kansas City Standard Steel told the Urban League We have not had a Negro working in 25 years and do not plan to start now And from Vultee Air in California a blanket statement was issued It is not the policy of this company to employ other than the Caucasian race Goodwin devotes several large sections of her book to this oft overlooked reality The reality that America s treatment of blacks segregated facilities lynching suppressed votes suppressed juries bore uncomfortable similarities to Hitler s Germany I ve definitely become sensitive to the elision of wartime black experiences having recently read Richard Slotkin s Lost Battalions about the World War I travails of the black community so I appreciated Goodwin s thorough dedication to the topic It bears mentioning that Hitler drew this analogy himself As did Goebbels Accordingly I suggest this is an exception to Godwin s Law and its corollaries If Hitler himself says you are like Hitler there is no violation This 600 page volume covers a wide array of subjects In many ways it is a sweeping look at life during war but away from war But at its heart No Ordinary Time is uite intimate In a very real way it is a household drama starring Franklin D Roosevelt Eleanor Roosevelt and a rotating cast of boarders No matter what is going on in the world everything that Goodwin writes about comes back to the couple living in the White House And that s okay Having finished No Ordinary Time I m hard pressed to think up a fascinating twisted and compellingly dysfunctional yet functioning administration FDR s White House is unbelievable The shenanigans that took place during his four terms 12 years make John Kennedy s sex filled fake Camelot look like a Family Circus cartoon Among the lodgers in the People s House were Missy LeHand the President s personal secretary and possible mistress and Lorena Hickok a one time journalist in love with Eleanor It is unlikely that Eleanor who was admittedly closed off in matters of the heart ever consummated a relationship with Hickok Goodwin meticulously documents the extracurricular drama aided and abetted by a press corps with far discretion than their modern day counterparts and makes good use of the White House logs to track the comings and goings of visitors She also notes for those who were wondering I include myself that FDR s polio did not cause a lack of sexual function Among other things this book is a portrait of a marriage an oddly paired emotionally destructive unfathombaly complex union Clearly FDR needed outlets mental if not physical that Eleanor could not provide Likewise Eleanor needed support and attention that she never received from her husband Perhaps both of them would have been happier had they never met Eleanor certainly would have been She knew of her husband s affair with Lucy Mercer probably suspected an affair with Missy LeHand and had to watch him flirt with Martha the crown princess of Norway She also had to endure FDR s carelessness his tactlessness and his occasional casual cruelty FDR is by any metric one of our greatest and most transformational presidents He was also sort of a prick Yet Goodwin persuasively argues that emotional incompatibility aside they made a formidable political team FDR dedicated himself to winning the war to the extent that he was willing to bargain away many of his New Deal accomplishments to that end He focused on the global picture the strategy and the mobilization He was single minded in his dedication to Axis destruction Eleanor provided the boots on the ground both literally and figuratively She traveled the country tirelessly meeting with constituents providing the personal touch She met with interest groups and soothed ruffled feathers She fought to protect the New Deal legacy and also to broaden the umbrella to include the black community If Eleanor had turned down FDR s proposal of marriage life might have been easier at the same time and to his credit FDR allowed her to achieve greatness in her own right Goodwin s portrait of Eleanor by itself makes No Ordinary Time a worthwhile read Her views were amazingly modern and inclusive and she had the guts to defend them at a time when many people didn t want to hear any opinion from a woman For a long time I avoided Goodwin s books I only knew her from Meet the Press where she d sometimes appear to deliver a facile comparison between current and historical events I figured if her books were as broad as her sound bites I d be better off avoiding them Team of Rivals proved I am an idiot for thinking this Now I have begun working my way through her bibliography No Ordinary Time is minutely researched beautifully written and tells a compelling story that combines elements of world historical import with scenes from the weirdest soap opera ever conceived It is part history part biography part TMZ and always engaging The Octopus Museum for History No Ordinary Time is a chronicle of one of the most vibrant
