About The Book

With expert storytelling skills, historian Jules Archer recounts the complete story of Watergate, from that first fateful predawn Saturday morning—June 18, 1972—when night watchman Frank Willis discovered “burglars” inside the headquarters of the Democratic National Committee to President Richard Nixon’s disgraced resignation two years later. This story dives into the cover-ups, the payoffs, the blackmailing, the scapegoats, and Nixon’s impending impeachment, conviction, and removal from office. As suspenseful as any detective story, Archer unveils the scandal of a president trying to steal an election that was already his.

More than eighty-five historic black-and-white photographs record the events, and Archer’s thoughtful questions and conclusions leave readers with much-needed cause for hope. Part of Sky Pony Press’s revitalized Jules Archer History for Young Readers series, with a new foreword by Roger Stone, Watergate strives to give young readers the whole truth about this moment in history, which will enable young people to form intelligent judgments essential to being a part of a functioning democracy.
