An excerpt from Harry Truman’s diary written at the end of the day on which FDR died

“Well, I just took over the job held by a man that most of the American people almost worshiped, and what did I get? Two wars covering the whole earth, Winston Churchill on one side and Joe Stalin on the other, and now they tell me something about a bomb that could destroy the world. I thought about it enough. I’m going to bed now.”
