Truman 4x54

He was a farmer, a haberdasher gone bankrupt, an unknown politician from Missouri who suddenly found himself President. Of all the men who had held the office, he was the least prepared. Yet Harry S. Truman would have to end the war with Germany and Japan, decide whether to use the most terrible weapon ever devised, confront the Soviet Union and wage war in Korea. Many feared he wasn’t up to the job, including Truman himself. Likable, modest, hardworking, he would prove them all wrong with a stubborn determination that would earn him a stunning political upset and the rallying cry “Give ‘Em Hell, Harry”.
