Summary
With Franklin Roosevelt's death in April of 1945, Vice President Harry Truman and Sen. Arthur Vandenberg, the Republican leader on foreign policy, inherited a world in turmoil. Working in strong bipartisan fashion at a bitterly partisan time, they crafted a dramatic new foreign policy through which the United States stepped boldly onto the world stage for the first time to protect its friends, confront its enemies, and promote freedom. Haas reveals how this collaboration helped create the United Nations to replace the League of Nations; pursued the Truman Doctrine to defend freedom from Communist threat; launched the Marshall Plan to rescue Western Europe's economy from the devastation of war, and established NATO to defend Western Europe
