The CIA’s Daily Presidential Briefs have covered some of the most important historical events in American and world history. Since the days of President Truman, the briefings have played a vital role in decision-making.
David Charlwood looks at famous events through a new lens, as he explores newly declassified CIA briefings and shows what successive presidents knew when making high-stakes decisions. David also reveals how the nuclear arms race, the Vietnam War and 9/11 might never have happened if presidents had read these briefs differently.
Author and journalist David Charlwood has written for BBC History Magazine and been a contributing historian for the BBC and Channel 4 television. He has published four history books, including the acclaimed 1920: A Year of Global Turmoil.
