A far more compelling account of just how Harry gave ’em hell-the campaign’s war cry-than the gauzy version that has hardened into legend.
--Wall Street Journal
An intimate and richly detailed view of one of the most colorful presidential campaign tours in American history.
--Candice Millard, author of The River of Doubt and Destiny of the Republic
Whistle Stop tells in masterful fashion the story of the election that the smart money said Harry S. Truman would lose.
--Paul Reid, author of The Last Lion: Winston Spencer Churchill, Defender of the Realm
[T]his reportage and analysis has much to commend Whistle Stop: How 31,000 Miles of Travel, 352 Speeches and a Little Midwest Gumption Saved the Presidency of Harry Truman. [It] is a dramatic page-turner. It is a worthy addition to the many books written about Harry S. Truman as well as an excellent addition to the growing body of work about presidential campaigns.
A fascinating page-turner.
--Matthew Algeo, author of Harry Truman’s Excellent Adventure
