The Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Harry S. Truman, whose presidency included momentous events from the atomic bombing of Japan to the outbreak of the Cold War and the Korean War, told by America’s beloved and distinguished historian. The life of Harry S. Truman is one of the greatest of American stories, filled with vivid characters—Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Wallace Truman, George Marshall, Joe McCarthy, and Dean Acheson—and dramatic events. In this riveting biography, acclaimed historian David McCullough not only captures the man—a more complex, informed, and determined man than ever before imagined—but also the turbulent times in which he rose, boldly, to meet unprecedented challenges. The last president to serve as a living link between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, Truman’s story spans the raw world of the Missouri frontier, World War I, the powerful Pendergast machine of Kansas City, the legendary Whistle-Stop Campaign of 1948, and the decisions to drop the atomic bomb, confront Stalin at Potsdam, send troops to Korea, and fire General MacArthur. Drawing on newly discovered archival material and extensive interviews with Truman’s own family, friends, and Washington colleagues, McCullough tells the deeply moving story of the seemingly ordinary “man from Missouri” who was perhaps the most courageous president in our history.

In this number-one New York Times bestselling book, Margaret Truman gives a moving and intimate portrait of her father, Harry Truman, one of America's greatest presidents. Her perspective on his career - from his early days in Independence, Missouri, to serving in the Senate, subsequent election as vice president, and years as president - is unique and compelling. The book provides a rare inside view into the presidency during a critical moment in the nation's history. Harry Truman had to address some of the most difficult problems any president has faced: He assumed the presidency during wartime, conducted negotiations with Joseph Stalin, made the decision to drop the atopic bomb, initiated the Marshall Plan, oversaw the Berlin Blockade, and dismissed General Douglas MacArthur, America's most revered military leader. Harry Truman was also a family man. The most important people in his life were his wife, daughter, sister, and mother. His letters to them contain fascinating descriptions and details of the leaders and events that were changing the world. Margaret Truman's understanding of both the political and personal aspects of her father's life make this book an essential and fascinating volume for anyone interested in American history.

Well-deployed primary sources and brisk writing by Wayne H. Bowen make this an excellent framework for understanding the evolution of U.S. policy toward Spain, and thus how a nation facing a global threat develops strategic relationships over time. President Harry S. Truman harbored an abiding disdain for Spain and its government. During his presidency (1945–1953), the State Department and the Department of Defense lobbied Truman to form an alliance with Spain to leverage that nation’s geostrategic position, despite Francisco Franco’s authoritarian dictatorship. The eventual alliance between the two countries came only after years of argument for such a shift by nearly the entire U.S. diplomatic and military establishment. This delay increased the financial cost of the 1953 defense agreements with Spain, undermined U.S. planning for the defense of Europe, and caused dysfunction over foreign policy at the height of the Cold War.
