In this dramatic account of that turbulent and consequential election, historian Susan Dunn brings to life the debates, the high-powered players, and the dawning awareness of the Nazi threat as the presidential candidates engaged in their own battle for supremacy. 1940 not only explores the contest between FDR and Willkie but also examines the key preparations for war that went forward, even in the midst of that divisive election season. The audiobook tells an inspiring story of the triumph of American democracy in a world reeling from fascist barbarism, and it offers a compelling alternative scenario to today's hyperpartisan political arena, where common ground seems unattainable.

Excellent In depth on a critical year
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
I found the details and little known facts of this book were fabulous in understanding such a critical year and election in our countries history. The story telling made the book deliver far more then facts but infused emotion into the topics discussed.
What was one of the most memorable moments of 1940?
Not one particular point but the ongoing tension between Willke and the GOP.
What about Corey Snow’s performance did you like?
The reflection and emotion helped understand the critical points.
