Truman, Paperback Book

Description

This biography of Harry Truman goes beyond the traditional portrait of the "ordinary man" to present an extraordinary American President.

Drawing on archival material and extensive interviews, McCullough chronicles Truman's boyhood in Missouri, his entry into politics and his surprising success as a US senator.

But it is Truman's emergence as a decisive and confident President that forms the heart of this book.

McCullough casts new light on Truman's character and motivations, and shows how he set the course of politics and policy for the next 40 years.

This book won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography in 1993.
