"Few elections have been more dramatic and decisive than Truman vs. Dewey in 1948. And few have found abler historians than A. J. Baime, who recounts this crucial moment with compelling verve and subtle insight."
--H.W. Brands, New York Times bestselling author of Dreams of El Dorado and Heirs of the Founders

"AJ Baime has written an illuminating book about one of our most mystifying presidential elections. He's written an enchanting book, with his trademark riveting storytelling. And he's written a hopeful book at a moment when that's needed, showing that facts can matter and the good guy sometimes wins."
--Larry Tye, New York Times bestselling author of Bobby

"The 20th century's most exciting presidential campaign finally gets its due, and with it, A.J. Baime ascends to the pinnacle of Truman biographers. One knows how the story will end from the moment reading begins, yet Baime's ability to paint an historical canvas shows in new and vivid details why this greatest election surprise in our nation's history still captivates, resonating today with new insights into our own political divisions. This is the way history should be written."
--Jeffrey Engel, author of When the World Seemed New

"Intimate, propulsive and eye-opening. A.J. Baime's account of Harry Truman's battle for the White House sweeps you up in its impeccably researched drama. A thrilling read."
--Stephan Talty, author of The Black Hand and The Good Assassin

"An absorbing chronicle of the months leading up to the extraordinary 1948 presidential election . . . Insightful . . . Even readers familiar with Truman's presidency will be engaged by the story of the campaign that came before."
