Summary
This is a groundbreaking work of meticulous historical research and the dramatic story of an act of terrorism that almost succeeded. Journalists Hunter and Bainbridge have pieced together the story of the 1950 conspiracy to assassinate President Harry Truman, and of how a few good men--ordinary guys willing to risk their lives in the line of duty--stopped it in a bloody shoot-out in the streets of Washington. The authors examine the forces that led the Puerto Rican nationalist perpetrators to conceive the plot. They tell the story of the men themselves, from their youth and the world in which they grew up, to the moment the gunfire erupted. This book is about courage--on both sides, about what politics and devotion to a cause can lead men to do, and about what actually happens, second by second, when a gunfight explodes.--From publisher description
