This explosive book chronicles why and how Ronald Reagan helped to bring down the Soviet Union. Based on exclusive interviews with key participants including Caspar Weinberger, George Schultz, John Poindexter, Robert McFarlane, and William Clark, Peter Schweizer provides the riveting details of how the Reagan inner circle undermined the Soviet economy—and its dwindling resource base—to subvert the Kremlin’s hold on its global empire. Using secret diplomacy, the administration dramatically reduced Soviet income while simultaneously driving Moscow to expend an increasing amount of precious assets; they also provided covert aid to indigenous forces in Poland and Afghanistan to roll back Soviet power. In Victory, Schweizer presents a compelling argument for the Reagan administration’s calculated strategy that is impossible to ignore.

Quotes & Awards

  • “A convincing, startling exposé that reads like a spy thriller.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “Reads like a Tom Clancy novel, complete with secret meetings, descriptions of weapons, and tales of espionage.”

    AudioFile

  • “Schweizer pushes the revelation envelope the furthest yet…interviews with Reagan’s top national security lieutenants…freshen the text with an élan that emulates the energy the Reaganauts displayed in rolling back the Soviet offensive of the late 1970s…this is, as far as it goes, an accurate, first draft of the secret history. Intelligence people will examine it closely, and so will library patrons.”

    Booklist

  • “Specifics of the CIA’s technology disinformation program and of its relationships with the Vatican, Solidarity, and the Voice of America make interesting reading.”
