Summary
"This work presents an analysis of the mission undertaken by Under Secretary of State Sumner Welles to Europe on behalf of President Roosevelt in February-March 1940. Roosevelt himself reckoned the mission had only "one chance in a thousand" of succeeding in influencing the course of the war in Europe, and yet he pressed ahead. Explaining the motivations and objectives of the President, J. Simon Rofe utilizes the Welles mission to further illuminate our understanding of Rooseveltian foreign policy making."--BOOK JACKET
