Summary, etc.:
President Truman led the nation through the end of World War II, the beginning of the Cold War, the struggle for civil rights and the creation of the United Nations.
He was a common man--a failed farmer, shopkeeper and county politician--who became one of America's greatest presidents. A leader of men and a man whose decisions would change the world: Harry S. Truman. "Give 'em Hell" Harry, a simple man of the people who led America and guided the world through the most troubled period in history. It was an era of tremendous unrest and a tough time to be President. Truman led a nation through the end of World War II, the beginning of the Cold War, the struggle for civil rights, and the creation of the United Nations. But whatever decisions he shared with the world, one decision had to be his all alone. The buck stopped with Truman when America dropped the first Atomic bomb, ending the war with Japan. Through it all, Harry Truman lived true to his aim "to serve the people--not to control them." This is his remarkable story.
