Young Mr. Roosevelt

FDR’s Introduction to War, Politics, and Life

By Stanley Weintraub
Narrated by Malcolm Hillgartner / 9 hours 6 minutes

In Young Mr.Roosevelt Stanley Weintraub evokes Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s politicaland wartime beginnings. An unpromising patrician playboy appointed assistantsecretary of the Navy in 1913, Roosevelt learned quickly and rose to nationalvisibility during World War I. Democratic vice-presidential nominee in 1920, helost the election but not his ambitions. While his stature was rising, histesty marriage to his cousin Eleanor was fraying amid scandal quietly coveredup. Even polio a year later would not suppress the ever indomitable Roosevelt and his inevitableascent.

Against the backdropof a reluctant America’s entry into a world war and FDR’s hawkish build-up of amodern navy, Washington’s gossip-ridden society, and the nation’s surgingeconomy, Weintraub summons up the early influences on the young andenterprising nephew of his predecessor, “Uncle Ted.”
