From the PublisherTruman's sudden ascension to the presidency following Franklin Roosevelt's death highlighted the differences in personal temperament and style between the two men. The book follows public response to Truman's plainspoken ways,
illustrating that what was originally seen as a handicap ultimately became an admired symbol of American honesty and strength. The accompanying CD contains portions of Truman's most significant speeches.
Noted historian Terry Golway brings Truman, his Presidency and his now classic come-from-behind campaign alive more than ever before in Give 'Em Hell: The Tumultuous Years of Harry Truman. Golway provides the kind of serious, no-wasted words history and analysis that has been missing - and he couples it with a CD that lets you hear Truman in action.
Golway does an exceptional job in his narrative of putting each speech in context...Highly recommended.
