Llyfr y Mis. Dan Law'r Diafol. Trailing Clouds of Glory Senator Truman supported the New Deal, although he proved only a marginally important legislator. He became a national figure during World War II when he chaired the "Truman Committee" investigating government defense spending. President Franklin D. Roosevelt chose Truman as his running mate in the presidential campaign largely because the Missourian passed muster with Southern Democrats and party officials.
The Roosevelt-Truman ticket won a comfortable victory over its Republican opposition, though Truman would serve only eighty-two days as vice president. Truman became the thirty-third President of the United States. The German leader Adolf Hitler committed suicide in Berlin only two weeks into Truman's presidency and the allies declared victory in Europe on May 7, The war in the Pacific, however, was far from being over; most experts believed it might last another year and require an American invasion of Japan. The U. Upon its completion and successful testing in the summer of , Truman approved its use against Japan.
On August 6 and 9, , the U. Army Air Force dropped atomic bombs on two cities, Hiroshima and Nagasaki, immediately killing upwards of , people with perhaps twice that number dying from the aftereffects of radiation poisoning. Truman faced unprecedented and defining challenges in international affairs during the first years of his presidency. American relations with the Soviet Union—nominal allies in the battle against Germany and Japan—began to deteriorate even before victory in World War II. Serious ideological differences—the United States supported democratic institutions and market principles, while Soviet leaders were totalitarian and ran a command economy—separated the two countries.
But it was the diverging interests of the emerging superpowers in Europe and Asia which sharpened their differences.

In response to what it viewed as Soviet threats, the Truman administration constructed foreign policies to contain the Soviet Union's political power and counter its military strength. By , Soviet and American policies had divided Europe into a Soviet-controlled bloc in the east and an American-supported grouping in the west. That same year, a communist government sympathetic to the Soviet Union came to power in China, the world's most populous nation.
At home, President Truman presided over the difficult transition from a war-time to a peace-time economy. During World War II, the American government had intervened in the nation's economy to an unprecedented degree, controlling prices, wages, and production. Truman lobbied for a continuing government role in the immediate post-war economy and also for an expansive liberal agenda that built on the New Deal. Republicans and conservative Democrats attacked this strategy and the President mercilessly. An immediate postwar economy characterized by high inflation and consumer shortages further eroded Truman's support and contributed to the Democrats losing control of Congress in the midterm elections.
Newly empowered Republicans and conservative Democrats stymied Truman's liberal proposals and began rolling back some New Deal gains, especially through the Taft-Hartley labor law moderately restricting union activity. Truman's political fortunes reached their low point in and , a nadir from which few observers believed the President could recover to win a second term. Freed from shouldering primary responsibility for the nation's economy which began to stabilize and the nearly impossible burden of uniting the disparate Democratic party behind a progressive agenda, Truman let the Republicans try to govern.
When they faltered or pushed conservative programs, Truman counterattacked with skill, fire, and wit. The President also took steps to energize his liberal Democratic base, especially blacks, unions, and urban dwellers, issuing executive orders that pushed forward the cause of African-American civil rights and vetoing unsuccessfully the Taft-Hartley bill. Truman won the presidential nomination of a severely divided Democratic party in the summer of and faced New York's Republican governor Thomas Dewey in the general election.
Few expected him to win, but the President waged a vigorous campaign that excoriated Republicans in Congress as much as it attacked Dewey.

Truman defeated Dewey in November , capping one of the most stunning political comebacks in American history. Truman viewed his reelection as a mandate for a liberal agenda, which he presented under the name "The Fair Deal. He did win passage of some important liberal legislation that raised the minimum wage and expanded Social Security. Moreover, the American economy began a period of sustained growth in the early s that lasted for nearly two decades.
Increasingly, though, his administration was buffeted by charges of corruption and being "soft on communism. Some of the most virulent and irresponsible anti-communists, like Wisconsin's Republican senator Joseph McCarthy, lambasted the administration and the State Department, in particular.
Significant foreign policy challenges persisted into Truman's second term.

The President committed the United States to the defense of South Korea in the summer of after that nation, an American ally, was invaded by its communist neighbor, North Korea. The American military launched a counterattack that pushed the North Koreans back to the Chinese border, whereupon the Chinese entered the war in the fall of The conflict settled into a bloody and grisly stalemate that would not be resolved until Truman left office in The Korean War globalized the Cold War and spurred a massive American military build-up that began the nuclear arms race in earnest.
Truman's popularity sank during his second term, due largely to accusations of corruption, charges that the administration was "soft on communism," and the stalemated Korean War. Unsurprisingly, Truman chose not to run in Eisenhower in the fall election. Truman's legacy has become clearer and more impressive in the years since he left office.

Most scholars admit that the President faced enormous challenges domestically, internationally, and politically. While he occasionally failed to measure accurately the nation's political tenor and committed some significant policy blunders, Truman achieved notable successes.
Domestically, he took important first steps in civil rights, protected many of the New Deal's gains, and presided over an economy that would enjoy nearly two decades of unprecedented growth. In foreign affairs, the President and his advisers established many of the basic foundations of America foreign policy, especially in American-Soviet relations, that would guide the nation in the decades ahead.
On the whole, Truman is currently celebrated by the public, politicians, and scholars alike. Grant Rutherford B. Hayes James A.
