How far would you go to tell the truth? This is the question that Daniel Ellsberg has to ask of himself. Ellsberg, a Pentagon consultant, knows the truth behind the decades of military and political deceptions concerning the Vietnam War, and he makes the decision to let the world know about the lies. Because he tells the truth, Ellsberg goes from being known as an American patriot to being considered the nationís most dangerous man. Award winning author Steve Sheinkin uses his skillful research to tell the story of how Ellsberg decided to share with the media the classified documents known as the Pentagon Papers, documents that revealed the lies behind the Vietnam War, in his nonfiction work Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War.  (Oklahoma Intermediate Sequoyah Award, 2018)
