From the Author
The Reagan Files
takes readers inside the White House Situation Room to see what it was like to be with President Reagan when he made his most important foreign policy decisions. So, if you ever wanted to know what it was like to be in the room with the President, Vice President, Secretary of State, Secretary of Defense, Director of CIA, and the National Security Adviser when they are talking about whether or not to take military action against the Soviet Union (and other countries) and potentially starting World War III, this is the book for you.
The book is based on over 100 recently declassified documents from the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library, and includes all the recently released private letters between Reagan and the four General Secretaries of the Soviet Union during the Reagan administration.
