Monday June 15 | 7:00 PM

Anchor of Fox News Sunday and author of Countdown 1945: The Extraordinary Story of the 116 Days that Changed the World

In his soon-to-be bestseller Countdown 1945, veteran journalist Chris Wallace examines the secret meetings and events in the 116 days before the use of the atomic bomb.

Countdown 1945 takes readers inside the minds of the iconic and elusive figures, like Albert Einstein and Robert Oppenheimer, who joined the quest for the Atomic bomb -- each for very different reasons.

Wallace expertly examines President Truman’s unimaginable struggle with his decision to create devastating carnage unlike anything the world had seen. Going far beyond the headlines, history books, and statistics, Countdown 1945 also gives an unforgettable account of the lives of ordinary Americans and Japanese civilians in wartime.

Told with vigor, intelligence, and humanity, Countdown 1945 is the definitive account of one of the most consequential moments in history.
