Presidents of War (2018) is a panoramic study of eight US presidents and the conflicts into which they led their country. Detailing each POTUS’ motivations for war, their decisions once hostilities began, and the mood of the press and public at home, these absorbing portraits of wartime leaders look at American history on the grandest of scales – from the War of 1812 to Vietnam. 

  • Americans wanting to understand their past leaders
  • Foreigners whose knowledge of American history is limited to the twentieth century 
  • Future presidents trying to avoid the mistakes of their predecessors

Michael Beschloss is an American historian specializing in US presidential history. He is the NBC News presidential historian and the author of nine books including Eisenhower: A Centennial Life and Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How They Changed America, 1789-1989
