by Brian Burnes
No current Talk conversations about this book.
Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0974000930, Hardcover)Here we see Truman in his most public roles; as "senator from Pendergast," successor to FDR, maker of such controversial decisions as the dropping of the atomic bomb and the firing of General Douglas MacArthur. But throughout these events Harry Truman revealed his innermost thoughts to his family in thousands of hand-written memoirs. The ways he approached the decisions he made were widely attributed by Truman and those who knew him to lessons learned in the earlier, less public part of his life.
This is the story of a common man from Missouri with uncommon, indeed unprecedented challenges thrust upon him, and how he met them.
