You know the prize fighter of the same name but you’ve never heard of the John L Sullivan from Manchester NH who served in Treasury and the Navy under Presidents Roosevelt and Truman. But there’s a new book out by Stephen Clarkson abot the life and times of this man of unquestioned integrity who figured out how to raise the money for WWII in a time of depression–including heavy taxes on the richest among us, and who worked well with both sides of the political aisle to steer a  sane and flexible military course in the face of powers which were focused exclusively on the atomic bomb. A fascinating story.
