This detailed account of the final months of Franklin Roosevelt's life, beginning with the Tehran Conference in the fall of 1943, is extraordinarily informative and a pleasure to read. The author is a fine stylist and provides not only a good overview of the 1944 election campaign (such as it was) and the diplomacy of WWII, but minute examination of FDR's health, psychology, postwar plans, manner of handling people and of governance, and personal relationships.
