Harry and Arthur by Lawrence Haas

Harry and Arthur | Truman, Vandenberg, and the Partnership That Created the Free World by Lawrence J. Haas explains how Vice President Harry Truman and Senator Arthur Vandenberg, the Republican leader on foreign policy, inherited a world in turmoil after Franklin Roosevelt’s death in April of 1945. With Europe flattened and the Soviets emerging as America’s new adversary, President Truman and Senator Vandenberg built a tight, bipartisan partnership at a bitterly partisan time to craft a dramatic new foreign policy through which the United States stepped boldly onto the world stage to protect its friends, confront its enemies, and promote freedom.
