Excellent book. A great read. I can't imagine what it must have been like for Ellsberg to know the government was after him and that the only way he could win was to become a traitor.
Setting: Nixon is in the White House, 1970 / President announces he is ordering forces into Cambodia
Nixon's Cambodia invasion sparked the biggest protests to date. And he was right–college campuses absolutely erupted…There was a major disturbance on the campus of Kent State University in Ohio…Protestors had smashed windows and set fire to a building used by the military. The National Guard had been called out to occupy the campus…the news came on the radio–the guardsmen had opened fire at Kent State…The campus looked like a war zone…Guardsmen in gas masks shot tear gas at the crowd. Some students threw rocks at the guardsmen. Most were just shouting. A platoon of guardsmen fired their rifles. Four students had been killed, two women and two men…"To answer stones and bad language with a random volley of .30-caliber bullets was not imaginable in America." -186
