Three days in January : Dwight Eisenhower's final mission by Bret Baier( Book )

15 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 1,902 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

January 17, 1961: President Eisenhower delivered a speech three days before President-elect Kennedy's inauguration: three days that were the culmination of a lifetime of service that took Eisenhower from rural Kansas to West Point, to the battlefields of World War II, and finally to the Oval Office. As president, Eisenhower--former Supreme Commander of Allied Forces during World War II--guided the U.S. out of war in Korea, through the threat of nuclear war with Russia, and into one of the greatest economic booms in world history. In his last address to the nation, Eisenhower looked to the future, warning U.S. citizens against the dangers of elevating partisanship above national interest, the expansion of the military-industrial complex, debt-heavy government budgets, and the creeping political power of lobbyists and other special interests. Eisenhower intensely advised president-elect Kennedy in the time between his speech and the other man's inauguration, and continued to offer advice and counsel during Kennedy's time in office. Dwight Eisenhower left the public stage at the end of these three days in January 1961 having done more than perhaps any other modern U.S. citizen to set the nation "on our charted course toward permanent peace and human betterment." Baier explores how his legacy resonates today, explains how Eisenhower embodied the qualities of political leadership that many in the U.S. are seeking at the present, and illuminates how the man still offers lessons for our own time
Three days in Moscow : Ronald Reagan and the fall of the Soviet empire by Bret Baier( Book )

10 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 1,391 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"On May 31, 1988, Reagan addressed a packed audience at Moscow State University, with a remarkable -- yet now largely forgotten -- speech that capped his first visit to the Soviet capital. This fourth in a series of summits between Reagan and Soviet General Secretary Mikhail Gorbachev was a dramatic coda to their tireless efforts to reduce the nuclear threat. More than that, Reagan viewed it as 'a grand historical moment': an opportunity to light a path for the Soviet people -- toward freedom, human rights, and a future he told them they could embrace if they so chose. It was the first time an American president had given an address about freedom and human rights on Russian soil. Reagan had once called the Soviet Union an 'evil empire, ' but now, saying that depiction was from 'another time, ' he beckoned the Soviets to join him in a new vision of the future. The importance of Reagan's Moscow speech was largely overlooked at the time, but the new world he spoke of was fast approaching. The following year, in November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell and the Soviet Union began to disintegrate, leaving the United States the sole superpower on the world stage. Today, the end of the Cold War is perhaps the defining historical moment of the past half century, and must be understood if we are to make sense of America's current place in the world amid the re-emergence of US-Russian tensions during Vladimir Putin's tenure. Using Reagan's three days in Moscow to tell the larger story of the president's critical and often misunderstood role in orchestrating a peaceful ending to the Cold War, Baier illuminates the character of one of our nation's most venerated leaders, and reveals the unique qualities that allowed Reagan to succeed in forming an alliance for peace with the Soviet Union when his predecessors had fallen short" -- Front and back jacket flaps

Special heart : a journey of faith, hope, courage and love by Bret Baier( )

4 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

SPECIAL HEART is a deeply touching personal story told through the eyes of a journalist as he faces the most daunting challenge in life - far more frightening than reporting from battlefields, infinitely more momentous than interviewing newsmakers of the day: caring for his critically ill newborn son. Baier reflects on past challenges as he looks forward with hope, chronicling the steps on his path to national prominence as a television anchor, as well as his unexpected journey into the world of pediatric cardiac disease. With the finely-honed insight of a seasoned reporter, and the deep love of a husband and father, Baier shares with readers the behind-the-scenes stories and emotional narrative of young Paul's life thus far, including the heart-wrenching fears and decisions he and his wife, Amy, have faced together. Surviving every parent's worst nightmare, Bret and Amy emerge - just like their brave young son - scarred but infinitely stronger, and clearly understanding what matters most in life. Reliving three open-heart surgeries and seven angioplasties, the story continues today as the Baier family faces a long road toward a normal healthy life for Paul. Told by a loving father and master storyteller, this hope-filled account offers an inspirational glimpse into the family of a man who just happens to be someone millions turn to for the day's news. One hundred percent of what the author receives from the sale of this book is donated to various non-profit pediatric heart causes
