Summary
Although the presidential election of 1944 placed FDR in the White House for an unprecedented fourth term, historical memory of the election itself has been overshadowed by the war, Roosevelt's heath and his death the following April, Truman's ascendancy and the decision to drop the atomic bomb. With its insider accounts of party politics and campaigning for votes in the shadow of war, this engrossing account reveals a fascinating chapter in American political history
