Truman: A Less Than Famous President With an Infamous Legacy

Missouri born and bred, Harry S. Truman led a long and interesting life. Mostly known as the president who sent the order to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki in order to put an end to World War II, Truman’s life is a fascinating narration of the American life transitioning from the 19th into the 20th century.

In Truman, David McCullough does an incredible job of sharing the story as Truman navigates through rural Missouri, World War One, his rise in politics and during his contentious presidency. We are right with Harry S. Truman as he makes momentous decisions spanning from Japan and Korea to Stalin and Russia.
