Product Overview

He was a startling contrast to Franklin Roosevelt. A farmer's son from west Missouri, Truman didn't chat; he talked, without art or inflection. And yet, this man of big dreams and simple phrases led the country out of war, welcomed the United Nations, and ran a cross-country campaign that changed American politics. His plain speech, first seen as a liability, became a symbol of transparency and gave him a platform to challenge his rivals-both at home and abroad-to honor their promises and commit to firm action.

Give 'Em Hell brings the president and his era to life like no other biography. It combines the insights of noted historian Terry Golway with Truman's own voice in audio excerpts from his most significant presidential speeches.
