Overview

Franklin D. Roosevelt became president in 1933 in the midst of a global business depression. He created jobs and helped those who needed it, but to accomplish this he had to change the government's part in national life. He went on to ably lead America during World War II, and played a principal role in starting the United Nations. This biography explores FDR's life and pivotal presidency.
