My favorite quotes from the book: Truman told him that from now on, Russia had to start keeping its promises. One of them paid Harry Truman an inadvertent compliment in the middle of his threats. He ignored its great achievements the Marshall Plan, the creation of NATO, the rescue of Europe from communism, the policy of containment, the courageous defense of freedom in Korea.
