Author David Pietrusza was welcomed by a full house for his talk to Villagers about his forthcoming book "1932: The Rise of Hitler and FDR: Two Tales of Politics, Betrayal and Unlikely Destiny."
The "Two Tales of Politics" portion of his talk was particularly interesting for those of us who were not well-versed in the pre-election political maneuverings in either the US. or Germany and Pietrusza brought out the (only!) similarities between FDR and Hitler as they related to their rise to power namely that neither of them was a "sure thing" when they began their quest for the highest office in their respective countries. I look forward to reading his book when it is published in October 2015.
