This Book is in Good Condition. Clean Copy With Light Amount of Wear. 100% Guaranteed. Summary: For three-quarters of a century, he exerted political clout in both New York State and the nation. His friends and enemies were among the celebrated and the powerful, the illustrious and infamous. He saw history being made. He made history himself. These are the memoirs of Hamilton Fish: his colorful life, the people who were a part of it and the world events he was instrumental in shaping. Politics was in my family's blood, so it was no surprise when I entered the field myself, observed Hamilton Fish. His great grandfather was the first adjutant general of the state of New York; his grandfather was governor of New York, a U.S. senator, a U.S. representative, and secretary of state for President Ulysses S. Grant; his father was a U.S. representative and served as assistant U.S. treasurer. Hamilton Fish joined their ranks in 1912 when he was appointed chairman of the Putnam County, New York, Bull Moose Party. Elected to the New York Legislature, with Franklin D. Roosevelt he fought political corruption and the power of the bosses and their political machines. During World War I, Fish was made captain of the 369th U.S. Infantry Regiment, the all black regiment known as the Harlem Hellfighters. His distinguished service won him the Silver Star for Bravery.

Riassunto:
For three-quarters of a century, he exerted political clout in both New York State and the nation. His friends and enemies were among the celebrated and the powerful, the illustrious and infamous. He saw history being made. He made history himself. These are the memoirs of Hamilton Fish: his colorful life, the people who were a part of it and the world events he was instrumental in shaping. "Politics was in my family's blood, so it was no surprise when I entered the field myself, " observed Hamilton Fish. His great grandfather was the first adjutant general of the state of New York; his grandfather was governor of New York, a U.S. senator, a U.S. representative, and secretary of state for President Ulysses S. Grant; his father was a U.S. representative and served as assistant U.S. treasurer. Hamilton Fish joined their ranks in 1912 when he was appointed chairman of the Putnam County, New York, Bull Moose Party. Elected to the New York Legislature, with Franklin D. Roosevelt he fought political corruption and the power of the bosses and their political machines. During World War I, Fish was made captain of the 369th U.S. Infantry Regiment, the all black regiment known as the "Harlem Hellfighters." His distinguished service won him the Silver Star for Bravery. Two years after the Armistice, he was elected to Congress, a seat he held for twenty-five years.

From Library Journal: The late ex-congressman offers a first-person history of the 20th century enlivened by his role through 90 of its years as a key player on the national and international stage. Names of family, friends, allies, and adversaries fill the book as they would a "Who's Who." With a large part of the book covering 1923 to 1945, Fish paints an unflattering portrait of Franklin D. Roosevelt as arrogant, power hungry, and deceptive. Opposing FDR on many issues--New Deal programs, Court packing, the creation of war hysteria, and Lend-Lease--he also reflected the antiwar sentiment and struggled to keep the United States out of war. Fish's prominent role in Congress ended in 1944, but his concern for America's best interests continued to his death. An epilog by Brian Mitchell provides personal insights. For general collections.
