A lot of wonderful things can be said about Truman, particularly his attitude to the office of the President.

We can not say wonderful things about Truman's idea to internationalise the waterways of Europe.

It was a silly idea and one given far too much attention by Truman.

In this episode I give what detail is available on the idea, discuss how and why Truman pushed the policy, and showcase it's obvious flaws.
