In this dramatic meditation on the life of Ronald Reagan, historian Paul Kengor presents an account of the fortieth president that has never been written—one that details Reagan’s campaign against the Soviet Union, which lasted more than forty years.
Utilizing reams of recently declassified documents, Kengor assembles a striking mosaic of Reagan’s words and actions that toppled the Soviet Union—from his covert support of the rebels who defeated the Soviets in Afghanistan to his secret oil collusion with Saudi Arabia that devastated the Soviet economy. With unparalleled research, this fascinating book tells the story of how one president did more to bring down the Soviet Union than any other single administration in this history of the Cold War. It’s a story of how one American’s fight ended the twentieth century’s longest war. It’s a story of one man who changed history. It’s the story of a crusader.
