About this title:

Synopsis: [This is the Audiobook CD Library Edition in vinyl case.]

[Read by Michael Kramer]

By the time the 1944 presidential election campaign geared up in the summer, Franklin D. Roosevelt had already been in office longer than any other president. Although he remained popular, the Republicans were determined to mount an energetic campaign, hitting hard against FDR's New Deal policies and the persistent rumors of corruption in the president's administration. FDR's Republican opponent in 1944 was New York governor Thomas E. Dewey. Preoccupied with managing the war in its most crucial year and battling declining health, FDR had to run a vigorous campaign in order to gain every vote possible.

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. Weintraub, as he has done in all his biographies, brings to life the man and his times, capturing those small but telling details that inform and delight.

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. He defeated Thomas Dewey in the last election to see a Democrat carry every southern state.

But the hard campaign took its toll on Roosevelt. He died the following April, just twelve weeks after his inaugural address in January 1945 and just eight weeks after he joined Churchill and Stalin at the Yalta conference to draw the postwar map of Europe.

About the Author: STANLEY WEINTRAUB is a National Book Award finalist and a former Guggenheim fellow. Professor emeritus of arts and humanities at Penn State University, he is the author of numerous histories and biographies, including Silent Night and 11 Days in December, and is an expert on George Bernard Shaw. He lives in Newark, Delaware.

Book Description Blackstone Audiobooks, 2012. CD-Audio. Condition: New. Library ed.. Language: English . Brand New. 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 and old-line Ohio governor John Bricker. Roosevelt s 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 America s only four-term president. Preeminent historian and biographer Stanley Weintraub recaptures FDR s striking last campaign and the year s 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-chief s forces were closing in on Hitler and Hirohito. Weintraub, as he has done in all his biographies, brings to life the man and his times, capturing those small but telling details that inform and delight. The result is unforgettable.
