The first lady of World War II : Eleanor Roosevelt's daring journey to the frontlines and back / Shannon McKenna Schmidt.

"On August 27, 1943, news broke in the United States that First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt was on the other side of the world. A closely guarded secret, she had left San Francisco aboard a military transport plane headed for the South Pacific to support and report first hand accounts of the troops on WW2's front lines. Meanwhile, for those ten days, Americans had believed she was secluded at home. As Allied forces battled the Japanese for control of the region, Eleanor was THERE, spending five weeks traveling to islands in the area, as well as Hawaii, New Zealand, and Australia, on a mission as First Lady of the United States to experience what our servicemen were experiencing... and report back home"-- Provided by publisher.
