Given the inevitability of the president's death during a fourth term, the choice of a running mate for FDR was of profound importance. The Democrats needed a man they could trust. They needed Harry S.
Truman faced a weak economy and a divided party.
Robert Ferrell tells an engrossing tale of ruthless ambition, secret meetings, and party politics. Roosevelt emerges as a manipulative leader whose desire to retain power led to a blatant disregard for the loyalty of his subordinates and the aspirations of his vice presidential hopefuls. Startling in its conclusions, impeccable in its research, Choosing Truman is an engrossing, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the nation's thirty-third president.

This book is supposed to be an educational one for young people. It contains more misstatements and false quotations than it contains facts and true statements from people purported to have been interviewed. To save too many knowing spreaders of misinformation from going to hell on the present biography I guess I'll have to state the few interesting facts of my life without the introspective trimmings with which most so-called writers and half-baked essayists clutter up the printed page. Ferrell provides illuminating summaries of the historical background and identities of people mentioned in the text.
An authentic Trumanesque version of the way he saw himself and the people he accepted or rejected. Want to Read saving…. Want to Read Currently Reading Read.
