Presidents of War: Michael Beschloss in Conversation with Katie Couric

Dec 12, 2018

Join preeminent presidential historian Michael Beschloss for a remarkable conversation with Katie Couric about his new book, Presidents of War—which is already getting rave review from his peers—like Jon Meacham, who said it’s “monumental ... a landmark book” and Ron Chernow, who called it “This brilliant work ... profoundly important.”

Beschloss has spent 10 years researching America’s wartime chief executives, and the result is dramatically eye-opening. Understand how presidents throughout history were able to withstand the pressures of war or were broken by them. And see how far we have traveled from the time of our founders, who tried to constrain presidential power, to our modern day, when a single leader has the potential to launch nuclear weapons that can destroy much of the human race.
