Fun facts about president harry s truman
Harry S. Truman by Margaret TrumanIt was refreshing to read about a President, from the perspective of a Daughter, you can tell that she adores her father. the book is filled with letters and document backing up her theories and conclusions. She is very biased about her fathers history and record, but the facts are well researched and documented. Harry Truman was a great President and Commander in Chief, and yet he is the only world Leader ever to authorize the use of an Atomic bomb against civilians and military targets. He also relieved a popular General of his command. Politics have not changed, President Truman had to fight the hostile press and a hostile congress, and accusations from Senator McCarthy about him being to weak on communist regimes and having communist in his cabinet. This is a very good book and I encourage political junkies and Presidential enthusiasts to read it.
