Summary
Preeminent historian and biographer Stanley Weintraub recaptures FDR's crucial last campaign and the year's momentous events, from the streets of small towns, where Roosevelt rode in an open car, to the battlefields of Europe, where generals carried out their commander-in-chief's winning strategy. American battlefield successes in Europe and the Pacific during the campaign, as well as Roosevelt's charm and humor, ultimately gave him the victory in the election
Summary
When the wartime 1944 presidential election campaign geared up late that spring, Franklin D. Roosevelt had already occupied the White House years longer than any other president. Sensing likely weakness, the Republicans mounted an energetic and expensive campaign, hitting hard at FDRs liberal domestic policies and the wars ongoing cost. Despite gravely deteriorating health, FDR and his feisty running mate, the unexpected Harry Truman, campaigned vigorously against young governor Thomas E. Dewey of New York and old-line Ohio governor John Bricker. Roosevelts charm and wit, as well as the military successes in Europe and the Pacific, contributed to his sweeping electoral victory. But the hard-fought campaign would soon take its toll on Americas only four-term president. Preeminent historian and biographer Stanley Weintraub recaptures FDRs striking “last campaign” and the years momentous events, from the rainy city streets where Roosevelt, his legs paralyzed by polio since 1922, rode in an open car, to the battlefronts where the commander-in-chiefs forces were closing in on Hitler and Hirohito. The tale is unforgettable.--Publisher
