Victory City with John Strausbaugh Book Talk at Salmagundi
New York City during World War II wasn’t just a place of servicemen, politicians, heroes, G.I. Joes and Rosie the Riveters. It was also home to quislings and saboteurs; war protesters and conscientious objectors; gangsters and profiteers; and bobby-soxers, poets, painters, scientists, and spies.
In Victory City, John Strausbaugh tells the story of New York City’s war years with richness, depth, and nuance, providing an important look into the City during this transformative war.
John Strausbaugh is the author of three books of New York City history: The Village, an epic history of Greenwich Village, and City of Sedition: The History of New York City during the Civil War. Both books boast awards and accolades. His latest, Victory City: A History of New York and New Yorkers During World War II, has been hailed as “a compulsively engaging read.” He lives in Brooklyn Heights.
