Livingston Lecture: Jay Winik, 1944: Fdr And The Year That Changed History says
New York Times bestselling author Jay Winik brings to life in gripping detail the year 1944, which determined the outcome of World War II and put more pressure than any other on an ailing yet determined President Roosevelt.

It was not inevitable that World War II would end as it did, or that it would even end well. 1944 was a year that could have stymied the Allies and cemented Hitler’s waning power. Instead, it saved those democracies – but with a fateful cost. Now, in a superbly told story, Jay Winik captures the epic images and extraordinary history as never before.

Jay Winik is the author of the #1 and New York Times bestselling April 1865 and the New York Times bestseller The Great Upheaval, and is renowned for his creative approaches to history. He is a popular public speaker and a frequent television and radio guest. He has been a regular contributor to The Wall Street Journal book review section, as well as to The New York Times. He is a former board member of the National Endowment for the Humanities and was a historical advisor to National Geographic Networks.
