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)
