America: The Last Best Hope (Volume II): From a World at War to the Triumph of Freedom [SCM]

(From Amazon): Respected scholar William Bennett reacquaints America with its heritage in the second volume of America: The Last Best Hope (Volume II). This engaging narrative slices through the cobwebs of time, memory, and prevailing cynicism to reinvigorate America with an informed patriotism. (Note: Contains some swearing when quoting original sources.)
