A Fine Sense of Honor: At War With the Men of the 504th Parachute Infantry From Sicily to the Fall of Germany

In the spring of 1943, the USS George Washington steamed out to sea carrying America’s most precious cargo: its youth. Out of farm fields and cities, dockyards and capitals a formidable fighting force was born and forged. They left their nation bordered by oceans to fight a disciplined, entrenched and combat-experienced army. They leapt from the sky to face the German on the isle of Sicily, the mountains of Italy and plains of Anzio, the fields of Holland and the frozen forests of the Belgian Bulge. This is their story.

In 2006, Ben S. Bernanke was appointed chair of the Federal Reserve, the unexpected apex of a personal journey from small-town South Carolina to prestigious academic appointments and finally public service in Washington’s halls of power.

There would be no time to celebrate.

The bursting of a housing bubble in 2007 exposed the hidden vulnerabilities of the global financial system, bringing it to the brink of meltdown. From the implosion of the investment bank Bear Stearns to the unprecedented bailout of insurance giant AIG, efforts to arrest the financial contagion consumed Bernanke and his team at the Fed. Around the clock, they fought the crisis with every tool at their disposal to keep the United States and world economies afloat.

Working with two U.S. presidents, and under fire from a fractious Congress and a public incensed by behavior on Wall Street, the Fed―alongside colleagues in the Treasury Department―successfully stabilized a teetering financial system. With creativity and decisiveness, they prevented an economic collapse of unimaginable scale and went on to craft the unorthodox programs that would help revive the U.S. economy and become the model for other countries.

Rich with detail of the decision-making process in Washington and indelible portraits of the major players, The Courage to Act recounts and explains the worst financial crisis and economic slump in America since the Great Depression, providing an insider’s account of the policy response.
