Description
When the wartime 1944 presidential election campaign began, Franklin D. Roosevelt had already occupied the White House longer than any other president. Sensing an opportunity, the Republicans and their nominee Thomas E. Dewey mounted an energetic and expensive campaign, hitting hard at Roosevelt's liberal domestic policies and the war's ongoing cost. An authority on FDR and a National Book Award nominated historian, Stanley Weintraub—author of The Young Mr. Roosevelt and Pearl Harbor Christmas—chronicles here how the gravely ill president and his obscure yet surprisingly effective running mate Harry Truman rallied for one more victory.

"Weintraub paints a vivid portrait of the public mood and of FDR literally willing himself to victory.... Historically satisfying, bringing the events to life with telling anecdotes, Weintraub's book portrays a political icon determined to make his mark on America and the world in the twilight of his life."—Publishers Weekly
