Brother Truman

£4.99

Product description

Brother Truman is the story of one of the few Great American Statesmen. It is the story of the human Harry S. Truman - a man with a philosophy anyone can emulate; a man who deeply loved his family, his country, and his fellow man; a man who refused to prostitute the title of President of the United States. Truman was the George Washington of the Twentieth Century. In Brother Truman you will find a man who considered others before himself; who felt strongly; who believed in and fought for his country and its citizens. Harry S. Truman was the right man in the right place on many occasions, especially during the trying days preceding during and following World War II. Few men, if any, could have so successfully carried the United States from the hells of war through the problems of peace. Within these pages will be found the Harry Trueman saved much of the world from despotism. Through his vision the starving in war-torn Europe were fed and the naked clothed. Because of his actions, ravaged industry, cities and countries were rebuilt, and an international forum was established which gave the world the prospects for no more global wars. Through his decisiveness he stopped the enemies of freedom on many fronts. Over the years more and more of Harry Truman's former critics have come to realize he was far more often right than wrong. Many have publicly apologized for their past criticism. Others have wished his successors have been as strong and unselfish.

Oxfam Bookshop St Albans

Oxfam is the UK's largest second hand bookseller, but it doesn't stop there. We sell a great range of donated music as well. Whether it's vintage LPs or the latest modern fiction you want, we're well worth a look! We also sell greetings cards for every occasion. And of course we have some great stock for sale on Oxfam's Online Shop, too. Call us to find out more.

Could you help us by collecting donations from donors homes? Our shop receives many offers of generous donations that we have to turn down as we do not have volunteers able to collect. We would ask you to collect in your own car, at your convenience and reimburse your petrol costs. It might be a couple of times a month and would make a really big difference to our ability to make money.
