Truman by David McCullough

CAJIC, January 2, 2010

I find this to be a very good book depicting the difficulties associated with Harry Truman taking over the presidency during the most challenging of times. With Franklin Roosevelt passing away in the midst of WW II, having to make a decision about dropping the bombs on Japan, and beinc the president of the USA with minimal political experience, Truman came through. He demonstrated great courage and made decisions during a very difficult time. One learns a lot about Truman.
