World War II dominated the decade of the 1940's, with a face-off between Axis and Allied powers in Europe, with the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor initially bringing the United States into the War. Big Three leaders Franklin D. Roosevelt, Winston Churchill, and Joseph Stalin meet at the Yalta Conference to discuss post-war reorganization of Europe. President Harry S. Truman ends World War II when he authorizes the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Japan, the only wartime use of nuclear weapons in history. American soldiers returning from the war start families and settle into houses in newly developed suburbs. Joe Louis takes back the heavyweight title. Through and through, the forties was a decade full of people, places, and events that changed the course of human history forever.

The year 1948 in particular sees President Harry S. Truman defeat Thomas E. Dewey in one of the major upsets in American political history. Mahatma Gandhi, the peace-loving spiritual leader of India, is shot and killed. Johnny Weismuller calls it quits as Tarzan. America loses the Great Bambino when baseball legend Babe Ruth passes away from cancer, at the age of 53. In this beautiful coffee table book, you'll find compelling pictures, facts, and stories covering the events of 1948 which changed our lives forever.
