Countdown 1945
Featuring Chris Wallace | Thursday, August 6 at 6 p.m.

On April 12, 1945, Harry S. Truman dramatically ascended to the presidency, after meeting with President Roosevelt only twice and having received no briefing on the atomic bomb. The first four months of the Truman’s presidency became some of the most climactic and significant of our nation’s history.

Please join us for a digital program featuring Fox News anchor Chris Wallace discussing his latest book, Countdown 1945: The Extraordinary Story of the Atomic Bomb and the 116 Days That Changed the World. Wallace will share stories from the key individuals involved in the development of the bomb, including Albert Einstein, Robert Oppenheimer, and most importantly, the untested new president who faced a decision that would change the world forever. Based on significant research conducted at the Truman Library, Countdown 1945 is a #1 national bestseller reflecting on these world-changing events 75 years later.

This 75th anniversary program is generously sponsored by Speaks Chapel.
