How did a virtually unknown Missouri man ascend to the White House in a matter of months?
How did a man who never wanted to be president hold up as he guided the United States to the end of World War II and into the Cold War?
What did he think when he learned about a secret that would end the war and change the world forever?
A.J. Baime uncovered answers to many mysteries about the early months of Harry S. Truman’s presidency in The Accidental President. This is one of the most gripping presidential biographies I have read. Baime brings readers into the White House for critical moments and into momentus talks with Churchill and Stalin.
This book made me feel like I was living the times with one of our most unique leaders.
