This week on History Happy Hour: Anna Rosenberg was a Hungarian immigrant who became one of FDR’s closest advisors and, according to Life Magazine, was “the most important official female in the world.” Her influence on 20th century America, from the New Deal to the Cold War, was remarkable.

Chris and Rick explore her life with Christopher Gorham, author of The Confidante: The Untold Story of the Woman Who Helped Win WWII and Shape Modern America.
