Faced with taking the reins after FDR’s death in 1945, Harry Truman successfully ended a two front war and later engaged in his own in Korea. From using the atomic bomb, to the Berlin Airlift, and the start of the Cold War, Truman’s presidency ranks as one of the most consequential.
This PBS documentary traces the path of Truman’s life, from small-time Missouri politician, to the highest office in the land. Featuring archival footage, photographs, personal diaries, letters, and interviews with people who knew him personally, this DVD is the perfect addition to any history classroom.
