Michael Beschloss

Looking at eight wartimes in American history from 1812 to Vietnam, Beschloss - the NBC News Presidential Historian - gives an illuminating profile of presidents as commanders in chief in his latest book, Presidents of War. He investigates the controversial aspects of Lincoln’s military leadership, the contradictions in Wilson’s approach to World War I, and Johnson’s options in Vietnam. Writing with his signature narrative flair, Beschloss assesses each chief executive’s preparation, communication, and decision-making.
