One of the best parts of going on a Stephen Ambrose Historical Tour is crowding into the bar at happy hour to discuss the places you have been and kibbitz over history tidbits.
Each Sunday at 4PM EDT, host-historians Christopher Anderson in London and Rick Beyer in Chicago each grab a cocktail and go live to talk history (and maybe some smack) during History Happy Hour. They welcome fascinating and knowledgeable guests such as authors Andrew Roberts, Joe Balkoski, Lynne Olson, and Hampton Sides for entertaining history discussions. And you get to join the conversation as well with questions and comments.
This Week on HHH – Joseph P. Kennedy and World War II
This week on History Happy Hour: The controversial appointment of Joseph P. Kennedy as US Ambassador to Great Britain on the eve of WWII. Author Susan Ronald argues within two years of his appointment, the legendary Boston tycoon had revealed himself to be a Fascist sympathizer and raging antisemite who misrepresented American foreign policy and disobeyed direct orders from FDR.
Host historians Chris Anderson and Rick Beyer welcome Susan Ronald, author of “The Ambassador: Joseph P. Kennedy at the Court of St. James’s, 1938-1940.”
“Seldom has the Joe Kennedy story been told in such a searing, remorseless way,” says the Wall St. Journal. An unflattering appraisal of the legendary Kennedy patriarch’s diplomatic star-turn on the even of WWII, this Sunday at 4PM ET on History Happy Hour, the spot where history is always on tap. #WWII #Kennedy
