Description
Although Harry Truman authorized the dropping of the atomic bomb and oversaw the end of World War II, his critics have sometimes dismissed him as "the Kansas City haberdasher," declaring his military credentials to be insignificant. In this biography—which features 18 pages of black and white photographs—D.M. Giangreco argues that the 33rd president's character was deeply influenced by his experiences as a captain in World War I, where he learned to do what he believed to be right, and selflessly strived to preserve the lives of his men. Decades later, a more poised and seasoned Truman would stand up to Josef Stalin and General Douglas Macarthur, and oppose North Korean aggression.
