I want to share the cover for The Jew Who Defeated Hitler, which is now available for pre-order on Amazon.
I love the cover because it highlights the close working relations between Henry Morgenthau Jr. and Franklin Roosevelt in developing the biggest economic program in human history. It also shows the immense media interest in what they were doing. It accentuates just how fascinating this chapter of economic history is.
I find it interesting that this cover resembles Hemingway on the China Front, to the extent that it is a black and white photo with red lettering. I’m developing a theme here.
Many thanks to Nicole Lecht for the wonderful design. You can view her other wonderful covers on her tumblr page at nicolelecht.com.
The Jew Who Defeated Hitler tells the story of Morgenthau’s work in financing the Allied war effort in WWII, and his work in rescuing European Jews and reorganizing the global economic system. Prometheus books will launch The Jew Who Defeated Hitler on Nov. 4.
