Product description

Review

Stephen E. Ambrose No one man won World War II for us, but none exceeded Alfred Loomis' contribution. He was critical to crucial developments, everything from radar to the atomic bomb. He put into victory his genius, his energy and his...Wall Street fortune. Author Jennet Conant put all of her considerable talents into this biography, which is as superb as the subject. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

About the Author

Jennet Conant's profiles have appeared in Vanity Fair, Esquire, GQ, Newsweek, and The New York Times. She was given unrestricted access to Loomis' and Conant's papers, as well as to previously unpublished letters and documents, and she interviewed Loomis' many family members, friends, and colleagues. She lives in New York City and Sag Harbor with her husband and son. --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
