Review:

''In this well-researched, engaging history, Weintraub effectively brings the players to life, portraying the public and private faces of the witty, indomitable FDR and his opponent, the stiff, humorless New York Gov. Thomas E. Dewey . . . A well-drawn political history of FDR's last days.'' --Kirkus

''Weintraub, a historian and bestselling author, dissects Franklin D. Roosevelt's historic fourth and last presidential campaign...Historically satisfying, bringing the events to life with telling anecdotes (like Truman's terrifying, prescient 'nightmare that Roosevelt had died and he, Harry S. Truman, was now president'), 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
