Biles fails to convey the tumultuous temper of the times and the drama of such incidents as the Bonus Expeditionary Force, the sit-down strikes, and the battle over FDR's plan to "pack" the Supreme Court; likewise, the personalities of Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt, among others who had such an extraordinary impact on their contemporaries, are left unexplored and unexplained, despite the excellence of many recent biographies that do so much to relate the particularities of key individuals to the actions and passions of the 1930s.
Weaver describes this tragic era in his novel Another Such Victory (1948), especially the episode of the Bonus Expeditionary Force of World War I veterans, whom Hoover badly mishandled.
