ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the manuscripts of U.S. President Harry S. Truman found by Francis L. Loewenheim at the Truman Library in Independence, Missouri. The first document ponders an ultimatum to the Soviet Union and China on waging war against South Korea. According to Loewenheim, the document refers to a final chance for the Soviet government to decide whether it desires to survive or not. The task for the U.S. government was to foil the aggression in Korea while confining hostilities to the peninsula.
