    When the 1944 presidential election campaign geared up late that spring, Franklin D. Roosevelt had already been in office longer than any other president. Sensing likely weakness, the Republicans mounted an energetic and expensive campaign, hitting hard at FDR’s liberal domestic policies and the ongoing cost of World War II. 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.

    Story

    This fascinating story about FDR's final presidential campaign provides wonderful insights into the man and the politics of the day. I was interested to learn about how much things have changed in presidential campaigns since 1944, and perhaps a bit surprised at how many things have NOT changed. This book provides a fantastic behind-the-scenes look at a campaign that challenged American democracy and determined FDR's successor."

    It is a compelling story, well written and well narrated.
