Historic Photos of Franklin Delano Roosevelt Summary

Historic Photos of Franklin Delano Roosevelt by Matthew Gilmore

Franklin Delano Roosevelt followed in the footsteps of the political career blazed by his cousin (and uncle by marriage), President Theodore Roosevelt. Beginning with local politics, he went on to serve a stint in Washington, then became governor of New York, and then won the presidency. His was a charisma similar to that of TR, but derived from his Delano side. His sunny disposition carried him through many trials, including disabling paralysis. As president his was a fearsome task, with two principal thrusts-restoring hope to an America mired in the Great Depression and leading the nation to victory in the Second World War.

FDR became an American icon. The hundreds of photos in Historic Photos of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, from the collections of the FDR presidential library, portray him throughout his life and career, revealing a presidency marked by the twin struggles for economic recovery and military victory. FDR's life in pictures, published here in striking black and white, captioned and with introductions, is sure to enthrall every reader interested in the biography of this renowned American leader.
