In this provocative book, Steven Casey challenges conventional wisdom about America's participation in World War I. More than fifty years after the collapse of the Third Reich, America's crusade against nazism still exerts a powerful hold over the popular imagination.

In this provocative book, Steven Casey challenges conventional wisdom about America's participation in World War II. Drawing on the numerous opinion polls and surveys conducted by the U. S. government, he traces the development of elite and mass attitudes toward Germany, from the early days of the war up to its conclusion.

President Roosevelt had to deal with public opinion and walk the "tightrope" of too much or too little involvement

President Roosevelt had to deal with public opinion and walk the "tightrope" of too much or too little involvement. Even after the attack on Pearl Harbor, the public was more inclined to support the war against Japan than the war against Germany. Roosevelt had to stay in touch with public opinion polls regarding the conduct of the war and, later, the question of the reorganization of the postwar world. The "Cautious Crusade" is a detailed reading of how FDR used opinion polls to help him craft his public responses to the political issues of World War II. An interesting read in light of our recent presidential election 2012.

Casey persuasively argues that the president and the public rarely saw eye to eye on the nature of the enemy, the threat it posed, or the best methods for countering it.

America's struggle against Nazism is one of the few aspects of World War II that has escaped controversy. Historians agree that it was a widely popular war, different from the subsequent conflicts in Korea and Vietnam because of the absence of partisan sniping, ebbing morale, or calls for a negotiated peace. In this provocative book, Steven Casey challenges conventional wisdom about America's participation in World War II. Drawing on the numerous opinion polls and surveys conducted by the U.S. government, he traces the development of elite and mass attitudes toward Germany, from the early days of the war up to its conclusion. Casey persuasively argues that the president and the public rarely saw eye to eye on the nature of the enemy, the threat it posed, or the best methods for countering it. He describes the extensive propaganda campaign that Roosevelt designed to build support for the war effort, and shows that Roosevelt had to take public opinion into account when formulating a host of policies, from the Allied bombing campaign to the Morgenthau plan to pastoralize the Third Reich. By examining the previously unrecognized relationship between public opinion and policy making during World War II, Casey's groundbreaking book sheds new light on a crucial era in American history.

Franklin D. Roosevelt has always been considered one of the greatest presidents in the history of our nation. In fact many sons of the era were named after him including one of my former managers that I reported to. I wrote my final 40 page college major (Government) paper on his accomplishments and legacy.

This book was very detailed revealing a complex man who had to deal with a multitude of political, personal and physical issues during a period in time when our country was threatened by the "Great Depression", Nazi Germany, The Empire of Japan and an isolationist movement. This was while suffering the painful and debilitating effects from polio including paralysis from the waist down. I discovered so many new facts about him that I intend to re-read the book a second and third time. He was president from 1932 until his untimely death in 1945 just before the end of World War II. His death was devastating to most of the nation. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in the history of our nation, the facts behind his decisions and the complex issues present at the time. He is responsible for many of the institutions and culture present in our country today including Social Security, the two term rule for presidents and the sanctity of equal and civil rights for all citizens of all races. A must read even if you don't like his actions and decisions.

I found this almost impossible to read with any interest. It read like a thesis and a not terribly interesting one at that. My apologies to the author.

This is well written history of how we slowly, insidiously slide into WWII. Clearly lots of Americans knew we were going to end up participating in WWII. We needed to get ready materially and emotionally. This book documents how we got there. I had always thought the entire country was ready to go to war after Pearl Harbor was bombed. That wasn't entirely the case. The authors research could have been just a dry recitation of facts but he really did a good job of keeping the human element in this book. I recommend this book to those interested prewar and early war America. There was a ton of information about what was going on behind the scenes.

I expected a storyline, not just facts. Got very boring after reading about 10%.

The "Cautious Crusade" is a detailed reading of how FDR used opinion polls to help him craft his public responses to the political issues of World War II. An interesting read in light of our recent presidential election 2012. It would be best for someone really interested in the detail of political history, or for any WWII buff.

Interesting subject that normally does not get in a book by itself. Surprising
that public opinion meant so much to FDR. Obviously, newspapers don't have the
same amount of pull as the 1930's and 40's. Worth the effort to read, although
the writing at times get tedious.

Liked that the writer did his homework and revealed facts that were not known to the public at the time. Book ended too soon though page wise thought, it would be a longer book.
