The Death of Franklin Delano Roosevelt

As important as Winston Churchill was to Britain, so was Franklin Delano Roosevelt to the United States. It was FDR who encouraged Americans after the attack on Pearl Harbour that “We have nothing to fear but fear itself.”

Unfortunately, FDR didn’t live to see the victory over the Axis. He had suffered from poor health for a long time but his death was still a shock. This video is a newsreel account of FDR’s career that was put together after his death.
