This in-depth account portrays the world-changing decisions of President Harry Truman, covering the tumultuous time period beginning with the death of Franklin D. Roosevelt and ending with the close of World War II. In writing about five of the most important months in history, Moskin recounts the defeat of the Third Reich, the dropping of the bombs on Japan, the birth of the United Nations, and the beginning of the Cold War. He discusses Truman’s ability to make decisions quickly and not look back despite his lack of experience with international affairs before becoming president. Truman’s experiences in Potsdam and the Japanese surrender at Tokyo Bay are covered extensively.
