- Program Description
“During the long appeasement nightmare in Europe, the United States lived almost completely in a climate of isolation. There was overwhelming hatred of the dictators and an emotional attachment to the right of the threatened peoples to survive - Ethiopia, China, Spain, Austria. But there was an adamantine firmness against any involvement that could lead to war. This chapter discusses the steady development of American foreign policy that moved from sympathy for the allies , to material assistance, to total involvement and intervention. Throughout, the leadership of Franklin Roosevelt, who had already made fundamental changes in the domestic life of the country, is decisive for this road from isolation to intervention.”
