Review of Th Accidental President by A.J. Baime

The Accidental President: Harry S. Truman and the Four Months That Changed the World - A. J. Baime

This was a great book that covers the first four months of Harry Truman's Presidency. Truth be told, the first 100 pages of the book covers Truman's rise to the Presidency but they really set the stage for the monumental task he faced at the end of World War II. The author clearly loves Truman, but I thought he was fair overall. This was my first book on Truman, and it has inspired me to want to read more about this controversial president.
