Truman is the winner of numerous awards for his work as a historian, including a Pulitzer prize and a Gold Medal from the American Academy of Arts and Letters. His inspiring, definitive biography of Harry Truman has been called “the best political biography of our time.”

In a career that spanned four decades, David McCullough revisited the era he encountered for the first time as a young man and again as a historian. He recounts Harry S. Truman’s extraordinary life in all its colors: from his unbridled ambition to become a Supreme Court justice to his lifelong devotion to faith and family, from his unlikely ascension to the presidency to the war of peace that followed.

The Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Harry S. Truman, the thirty-third president of the United States, by David McCullough. Truman, a child on the plains who grew up in the small town of Grandview, Missouri, was supposed to be a nobody. But through hard work and talent, he outlasted all his competitors to become president in a country that had never elected a Democrat in office—and then went on to command massive wars and make history with his actions.

Truman, who served as the president during one of the most critical periods in American history, is best remembered for his decision to drop atomic bombs on Japan. But he was also responsible for initiating the Marshall Plan, a massive response to defeat Nazi Germany in World War II, that helped modernize Europe and consolidate American leadership worldwide. This Pulitzer Prize–winning biography tells Truman’s story through his own words and with invaluable insights from experts on those times.

About Truman Book

The Pulitzer Prize–winning biography of Harry S. Truman, whose presidency included momentous events from the atomic bombing of Japan to the outbreak of the Cold War and the Korean War, told by America’s beloved and distinguished historian.

The life of Harry S. Truman is one of the greatest American stories, filled with vivid characters—Roosevelt, Churchill, Stalin, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bess Wallace Truman, George Marshall, Joe McCarthy, and Dean Acheson—and dramatic events. In this riveting biography, acclaimed historian David McCullough not only captures the man—a more complex, informed, and determined man than ever before imagined—but also the turbulent times in which he rose boldly to meet unprecedented challenges. The last president to serve as a living link between the nineteenth and the twentieth centuries, Truman’s story spans the natural world of the Missouri frontier, World War I, the powerful Pendergast machine of Kansas City, the legendary Whistle-Stop Campaign of 1948, and the decisions to drop the atomic bomb, confront Stalin at Potsdam, send troops to Korea, and fire General MacArthur. Drawing on newly discovered archival material and extensive interviews with Truman’s family, friends, and Washington colleagues, McCullough tells the profoundly moving story of the seemingly ordinary “man from Missouri” who was perhaps the most courageous president in our history.
