Harry Truman and the 'Most Controversial Decision'
Fr. Wilson Miscamble is a professor of history at the University of Notre Dame and has written a book on a topic that I find to be fascinating and morally compelling. The Most Controversial Decision: Truman, the Atomic Bombs and the Defeat of Japan is a comprehensive analysis of the choices Harry Truman made to end WWII in the manner he did.
I thought this book and topic important enough to commission a Prager University course on the subject.
Many in this country base their low view of the United States largely on the decision to drop the atomic bomb. Professors at leading universities teach entire semester-long courses to that effect. I, however, agree with Fr. Miscamble.
