Harry S. Truman served as president during the end of World War II and the start of the Cold War. He had to make some of the most difficult decisions any president has ever confronted, such as whether to unleash the atomic bomb against Japan and how to stop the spread of communism. For many, Truman seemed like such an ordinary man and, unlike most recent presidents, didn't even have a college degree. In this biographical magazine, however, we cover how he led the United States with firm leadership and common sense.

Created for children in 3rd through 5th grade, PragerU’s beautifully illustrated biographical magazines are packed with facts and fun to teach elementary students about important figures often mischaracterized or forgotten in today’s classrooms.
