The most dangerous man in America : Daniel Ellsberg and the Pentagon papers( Visual )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 1,246 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Daniel Ellsberg was an unlikely rebel. As a brilliant tactician, Harvard graduate, and committed Cold Warrior, he played a crucial role in mapping out the American strategy in Vietnam, even living in Vietnam to see firsthand how the war was going. The more Ellsberg learned about American involvement in Southeast Asia, the more violently disillusioned he became, because he was charged with trying to win what he came to see as an unwinnable war. The proud hawk became a passionate dove, setting the stage to become one of the highest-profile whistle-blowers in American history, for leaking the "Pentagon Papers" (a massive set of classified documents detailing the Pentagon's botch of the war and the bogus grounds under which it was fought) to the New York Times. Thus was Daniel Ellsberg transformed, into a firebrand radical committed to ending the war by any means necessary, even if it meant spending the rest of his life in jail
