Chris Wallace: Countdown to Catastrophe

Monday, July 27

6:30 PM 


For more than four decades, from his perch as a reporter and anchor, Chris Wallace has been telling us stories as they unfold. Now, on the 75th anniversary of the bombing of Hiroshima, he is taking us behind the scenes of a world-changing historical event to the tale of an untested president, ambitious scientists, terrified soldiers, competitive pilots and the men and women who paid the price for unleashing nuclear power. 

After working as a White House correspondent and news anchor for NBC and ABC — and winning three Emmys in the process — Chris Wallace is currently anchor of Fox News Sunday.

Moderated by Jay WinikNew York Times bestselling author and American historian. Read his New York Times Book Review of Countdown 1945 here.
