By Peter Schweizer

Did a secret American Strategy hasten the collapse of the Soviet Union?

Based on exclusive interviews with key participants, including Caspar Weinberger, George Schultz, John Poindexter, Robert McFarlane, and William Clark, Victory chronicles how and why Ronald Reagan helped to bring down the Soviet Union.

In this explosive book, Peter Schweizer provides the riveting details of how the Reagan inner circle undermined the Soviet economy and its dwindling resource base, and subverted the Kremlin’s hold on its global empire.

Using secret diplomacy, the administration dramatically reduced Soviet income while at the same time driving Moscow to expend an increasing amount of precious assets. On another level, there was an American initiative to provide covert aid to indigenous forces in Poland and Afghanistan to roll back Soviet power.

Schweizer’s compelling and convincing argument on the Regan administration’s calculated strategy is impossible to ignore.

Peter Schweizer is a best-selling author and political consultant who completed his book as a media fellow at the Hoover Institution on War, Revolution and Peace, Stanford University. His work has appeared in the New York Times, Washington Post and Breitbart.
