The Best of American Heritage: Roosevelt

Written by Edwin S. Grosvenor

Franklin Delano Roosevelt led the United States through two of the most critical periods in our history – the Great Depression and World War II. And in those twelve years, he did more than any president except Abraham Lincoln to change America.

Here, some of the country’s greatest historians – James MacGregor Burns, Thomas Fleming, John Kenneth Galbraith, Richard Ketchum, John Lukacs, Allan Nevins, Joe Persico, William vanden Heuvel, and Geoffrey Ward – bring FDR vividly to life, assessing his place in history and exploring his marriage to Eleanor, his struggle with polio, his love of Hyde Park, his relationships with Winston Churchill and Joseph Stalin, and his complicated final days.
