Truman's life was filled with vivid characters -- Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Truman, George Marshall, Joe McCarthy, and Dean Acheson -- and dramatic events. Truman's story spans World War I, the Pendergast machine of Kansas City, dropping the atomic bomb, confronting Stalin at Potsdam, and sending troops to Korea. McCullough tells the story of the man who was perhaps the most courageous president in our history.
