Description

'The story read "Five men, one of whom said he is a former employee of the CIA, were arrested yesterday in what authorities described as an elaborate plot to bug the offices of the Democratic National Committee." The thought that the break-in might be the work of the Republicans seemed implausible...' When two reporters are assigned to cover what seems a routine burglary in the opulent Watergate building in downtown Washington, it becomes the first step in what must be the most devastating political detective story. This is Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein's gripping story of how they uncovered a scandal that still reverberates throughout the world. It follows their first suspicions through the torturous trail of false leads, lies, secrecy and high-level pressure, to the final moments when they are able to put the pieces of the puzzle together and write the expose that wins them a Pulitzer Prize and leads to the downfall of the President of the United States, Richard Nixon.show more
