FDR’s Birthday

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933

Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 1933

Today is the 127th birthday of Franklin Delano Roosevelt, America’s thirty-second president and the only president elected to four successive terms.

If you’re looking for a good book on Roosevelt, you’ll find more than twenty biographies and related works on the library shelves, along with dozens upon dozens of related historical volumes.

An excellent recent work to consider is Jon Meacham’s Franklin and Winston: An Intimate Portrait of an Epic Friendship, which focuses on the vital relationship, crucial to the outcome of events in the twentieth century, of Franklin Roosevelt and Winston Churchill. You’ll find a brief review of Meacham’s book in our earlier post Peril, Power and Personal Diplomacy
