He was a farmer, a businessman, an unknown politician who suddenly found himself president. Of all the men who had held the highest office, Harry Truman was the least prepared, but would prove to be a surprise. Acclaimed filmmaker David Grubin recounts his struggles and success as an army captain and marriage to his lifelong sweetheart, Bess. When he landed the vice presidency in 1944 he had no idea that his world was about to change forever.

Truman Triumphed For The Disadvantaged Americans!

By RICO Attorney

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Truman DVD:

22 August 2016

Truman expanded upon FDR's legacy by directly addressing racial inequalities and taking the political action FDR refused to initiate due to focusing on economic recovery for all Americans. Everyone must see this significant film!

Truman was an American Treasure

By Willie T.

from Stafford County, Virginia

Verified Buyer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Truman DVD:

Truman is an true life example that you, too, can be President. All of what he accomplished was done without the support of his wife who perhaps was the most ungracious First Lady of modern times. I really enjoyed this documentary.

Engrossing portrait of President Truman

By Newbie History Buff

from Sacramento, CA

Verified Reviewer

Comments about PBS American Experience: Truman DVD:

What a powerful, engrossing story of Harry Truman's rise to the Presidency! This documentary did such a great job of fleshing out Truman the man, who was self-effacing but highly principled. It was fascinating to watch him grow in confidence and in his ability to make the toughest decisions any human being will ever have to make. Through it all, his devotion to Bess, his wife, was simply extraordinary. I highly recommend this to history buffs and to those who love to learn life lessons from other's trials and tribulations.
