Re-creating the consciousness of America from 1938-1941, The Borrowed Years skillfully mingles the personal with the cataclysmic. It begins with a new generation of journalists--Murrow, Shirer, Severeid--bringing us the faraway voices of men named Chamberlain, Churchill, and Hitler, and tellsolationism and the woeful weakness of the U.S. military during that borrowed time when America lost its innocence. 20 photographs and 5 maps.
