The Last 100 Days: FDR at War and at Peace

The first 100 days of Franklin Roosevelt's presidency witnessed his inauguration of the New Deal, his decision to take the United States off the gold standard and much else that made it one of the most influential periods of political action in American history.

Roosevelt scholar David Woolner takes us through the final days of FDR's presidency and life. While struggling against political opponents, unreliable generals and his illness, FDR persevered through some of the most important and controversial developments of his presidency, from the atomic bomb to the UN.
