The Most Dangerous Man in America: Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon Papers

Most Dangerous Man

In 1971, Daniel Ellsberg, a high-level Pentagon official and Vietnam War strategist, concludes that the war is based on decades of lies.  Armed only with his conscience, steadfast determination and a file cabinet full of classified documents, he leaks a top-secret Pentagon study to The New York Times, making headlines around the world.

Hailed as a hero, vilified as a traitor, and ostracized by even his closest colleagues, Ellsberg risks life in prison to stop a war he helped plan. This political thriller is a riveting story of how one man’s profound change of heart led directly to Watergate, Nixon’s resignation and the end of the Vietnam War.
