NEW YORK -- The Bank of Credit and Commerce International and two of its founders have been indicted for fraud, falsifying records and grand larceny in what Manhattan District Attorney Robert Morgenthau termed "the largest bank fraud in world financial history."On another front in Washington yesterday, the Federal Reserve Board imposed a record $200 million fine on BCCI and sought to bar the founders and seven others from any involvement with U.S. banks in the future.The indictment, the biggest U.S. law enforcement action to date in the unfolding global banking scandal that could cost depositors more than $5 billion, represented just the tip of the investigative iceberg in Morgenthau's 2 1/2 -year probe.

The Conquerors: Roosevelt, Truman and the Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1941-1945, by Michael R. Beschloss. Simon & Schuster. 400 pages. $26.95. Is there room on the crowded shelf for yet another book about World War II? There should be for one as scholarly and absorbing as Michael Beschloss' latest offering. The tale the respected historian tells does not resound with the clangor of battle; its flow is not laced with blood of victors and vanquished. This struggle was waged in the well-appointed corridors of immense political power.

Despite a small number of books criticizing President John F. Kennedy since his assassination, many continue to think of him as an unblemished paragon - a glamorous, intelligent, hard-working chief executive.

That is where Seymour Hersh comes in. His book, "The Dark Side of Camelot" (Little, Brown, 498 pages, $26.95)
