TUMULTOUS YEARS: The Presidency of Harry S. Truman, 1949-1953—Robert J. Donovan—The second of a two part series on the Truman Presidency (the first being Conflict and Crisis) the series having been called on of the finest, most balanced, histories of the Truman Administration, deals with a variety of tumultuous events the Korean War, the Communist seizure of China, Truman's firing of General MacArthur, first-steps in Vietnam, organization of NATO, this Hiss conviction and a host of scandals and other miscellaneous problems facing Truman in those four years. Once again the reader is forced to understand that some things remain the same. As long as our form of government remains the same there will always be bickering, backbiting, hyperbole and huge frustrations as the player vie for power—much of which is to the detriment of the country. The author covered the Truman Years for the New York Herald...and later as an historian researched extensively to produce this vivid portrayal of those years.
