I am participating in the A-to-Z Challenge again this year. My theme is My Favorite Books. Most of the books I will be posting about, I have read more than once. After all, they are my favorites.
This biography of Harry S Truman was published in 1992. Its detail from birth through death led to the 1993 Pulitzer Prize for the author.
I love biography and McCullough is a favorite writer. I have also read his Mornings on Horseback, about the childhood of Theodore Roosevelt. His work on John Adams is exceptional and it won the 2002 Pulitzer Prize.
But I like Truman the best because he could be a neighbor. The book captured his down-home personality, mixed with his strong beliefs.
Treat yourself and read about the man who made the decision to unleash the atomic bombs on Japan to end World War II.
