Lots of interesting information, not just about Watergate. Info on the FBI from very early on, Hoover and how he ran the FBI, the FBI culture over the years. Not enough specifically about Watergate but with all the background and personal information you can understand more about why Mark Felt did what he did, his internal struggles over it, and why he kept secret for so long. With him being so high up in the FBI you get to see the relationship between the government, FBI, and CIA in a different light and what impact the changing of Presidents can have on more than politics. Shows how the FBI became politicized and can understand better the problems it faced after the 1970's and why it is so important to keep the branches of government separate, the lawforce agencies (CIA, FBI, etc.)strengthened against political intrusion.
Very good story of something many people may not know about. Also some information about Tito and how he usurpped control of Yugoslavia and some of things about the problems the US faced during the cold war. However most is about great civilians and the soldiers they helped to rescue. Touching story of those special moments that soldiers retain forever and how governments get in the way and create future problems.
