A groundbreaking expose on the breakdown of Franklin Delano Roosevelt's health at the end of his life, revealing new evidence that the president was more seriously ill for a longer time before his death that has been previously acknowledged. The death of President Franklin Delano Roosevelt on April 12, 1945 sent shock waves throughout the United States and the entire world. Despite longstanding rumors among Washington insiders and a whispering campaign by his political foes that the president was gravely ill, his death appeared to be wholly unanticipated. Indeed, his trusted personal physician, Admiral Ross McIntire, would claim till his dying day that Roosevelt was always the picture of health for a man of his age. But this was a carefully constructed deceit, one that began in the 1930s and became acutely necessary as America approached World War 2. In 1970 Roosevelt's cardiologist admitted he had been suffering from hypertension and that his death - from a cerebral oedema - was 'a cataclysmic event waiting to happen'. Even this was not wholly accurate, yet it has never been challenged. With an exhaustive study of all available reports of FDR's health and a comprehensive review of thousands of photographs, "FDR's Deadly Secret" demonstrates that while Roosevelt did suffer from severe cardiac problems, the actual cause of his death was most likely due to a hemorrhage from a brain tumor that had metastasized from and eventually spread not only to his brain, but throughout his body, including his gastrointestinal tract. This changes the nature of Roosevelt's condition from a physically disabling one, to one that might have affected substantially his ability to make decisions and to function mentally during the crucial days when the nation was imperiled by war. Yet the American public were never told.
