780: 4/4 Young Mr. Roosevelt: FDR's Introduction to War, Politics, and Life, by Stanley Weintraub

The John Batchelor Show

Image:  Rare photograph of Roosevelt in a wheelchair, with Fala and Ruthie Bie, the daughter of caretakers at his Hyde Park estate. Photo taken by his cousin Margaret Suckley (February 1941).  Young Mr. Roosevelt: FDR's Introduction to War, Politics, and Life, by Stanley Weintraub In Young Mr. Roosevelt, Stanley Weintraub evokes Franklin Delano Roosevelt's political and wartime beginnings. An unpromising patrician playboy appointed assistant secretary of the Navy in 1913, Roosevelt learned quickly and rose to national visibility in World War I. Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 1920, he lost the election but not his ambitions. While his stature was rising, his testy marriage to his cousin Eleanor was fraying amid scandal quietly covered up. Ever indomitable, even polio a year later would not suppress his inevitable ascent.       Against the backdrop of a reluctant America's entry into a world war and FDR's hawkish build-up of a modern navy, Washington's gossip-ridden society, and the nation's surging economy, Weintraub summons up the early influences on the young and enterprising nephew of his predecessor, “Uncle Ted.”   https://www.amazon.com/Young-Mr-Roosevelt-Introduction-Politics-ebook/dp/B00E257TEO/ref=tmm_kin_swatch_0?_encoding=UTF8&qid=&sr=
