Michael Beschloss is one of the most  acclaimed writers on the American presidency, the author of multiple bestsellers including The Conquerors: Roosevelt, Truman and the Destruction of Hitler's Germany, 1941-1945, Presidential Courage: Brave Leaders and How they Changed America, 1789-1989, and Jacqueline Kennedy: Historic Conversations on Life with John F. Kennedy.  A frequent commentator on the PBS NewsHour and the NBC News Presidential Historian, Beschloss joined us in the studio to talk about his new book Presidents of War: The Epic Story from 1807 to Modern Times — and what his look at the most fraught aspect of presidential power can teach us today.
