Краткое описание

Two Americans: Truman, Eisenhower, and a Dangerous World.

President Harry Truman and his successor Dwight Eisenhower were both Midwesterners, alike in many ways—and sharply differed in others. This book from the author of Arguing About Slavery and Lincoln's Virtues interweaves Truman's and Eisenhower's life stories—their contrasting experiences in the Great War (Truman led men in battle; Eisenhower did not) and their careers between the wars (Truman was the quintessential politician; Eisenhower the thoroughgoing anti-politician, ensconced in the military). Then in the wartime 1940s, these two ordinary men were abruptly lifted up to become leaders of the world—and the first to wield atomic weapons."This is a book for those who enjoy history and cherish its ironies.... William Lee Miller is a scholar with a light-handed style as anecdotal as it is academic. He keeps his subjects off pedestals and firmly grounded as he relates the momentous events that confronted them and how each rose in stature to respond, for they were two surprisingly ordinary men.... Miller delights in telling stories ... stories told affectionately with insight and sensitivity, messages ringing with relevance for us today."—Washington Independent Review of Books
