Harry S. Truman, a failed farmer, haberdasher, oil prospector, lead miner, banker, law student and county politician, was President of the United States during that country's most troubled times. Widely criticized and constantly embroiled in political battles, Truman left office in 1952 with one of the lowest approval ratings of any president. Yet his intelligence, integrity and decisiveness had a profound effect on world events that continues to this day. He faced his trials with homespun candour, humour and wisdom, and a humble belief in hard work. Harry S. Truman - an honest, and extraordinary 'ordinary' man, unchanged by power and circumstances, a man that History has now judged one of America's greatest leaders.
