In his first three months in office President Harry Truman was forced to face the greatest challenges ever to confront a world leader--including the decision to drop the A-bomb, the beginning of the Cold War, and more. Now, the former foreign editor for Look magazine presents, for the first time, the dramatic story of Truman's first five months as president.

When Franklin D. Roosevelt died, the task of bringing about a swift end to World War II fell to Harry Truman. In Mr. Truman's War, J. Robert Moskin sets out to "pull together the varied, conflicting strands that made (the last five months of World War II) one of the crucial and exciting moments in the world's history." Moskin, who is also the author of The U.S. Marine Corps Story, points out that while much of the architecture of the postwar world had already been decided before Roosevelt's death, Truman was faced with a host of difficult decisions, including when and how to deploy the atomic bomb. Mr. Truman's War is a detailed and readable recounting of the closing chapter of World War II.About the Author:
