More About Upton Sinclair
Upton Sinclair (1878-1968) was born in Baltimore and began writing dime novels to pay his way through the College of the City of New York. While doing graduate work at Columbia University, he wrote six novels, including King Midas (1901), The Journal of Arthur Stirling (1903), and Manassas (1904). His masterwork, The Jungle (1906), aided the passage of pure food laws and won him wide acclaim. Active throughout his life in socialist causes, he invested the money he made from The Jungle in a Utopian experiment, the Helicon Hall Colony in Englewood, New Jersey. In 1915, he moved to California, where he ran unsuccessfully for public office and waged an antipoverty campaign. Among his later works was Dragon's Teeth (1942), for which he won a Pulitzer Prize.
Upton Sinclair was born in 1878 and died in 1968.

Reviews - What do customers think about A World to Win II (World's End Series, Volume 14)?
A World to Win (II) Feb 14, 2007
Note: I have also posted this review under "A World to Win I", because it was originally published as one volume, and I read it as such.
This is probably my favorite book in the World's End series so far--it is fast paced and exciting. Lanny continues his activities as a presidential agent in earnest, returning to Germany and Hitler, and becoming more entangled in German affairs. The romance also heats up in this volume: Lanny is torn between his attraction for the young heiress Lizbeth Holdenhurst and her older, more intelligent cousin Laurel Creston, even while feeling that as a secret agent, he cannot afford to marry. Towards the end of A World to Win, Sinclair has Lanny venture outside of familiar territory, traveling in China and Russia and meeting Mao and Stalin. This series, which begins with "World's End" is a wonderful way to learn about WWII while reading an exciting book.
