Description

Nearly everyone involved with the Watergate saga has been scrutinized, except one: night watchman Frank Wills. On the evening of June 17, 1972, the 24-year-old security guard was on duty at the Watergate Office Building when he detected a break-in. A high school dropout with only a few hours of formal security training, Wills alerted the police who caught five burglars, ultimately igniting a national political scandal that ended with the resignation of President Richard Nixon. Through exhaustive research and numerous interviews, the story of America's most famous night watchman is told. The only African American connected with the Watergate affair, Wills enjoyed a brief moment in the limelight but was unable to cope with his newfound fame and lived the remainder of his life in obscurity and poverty.

The shipping was just superior

The shipping was just superior; not even one of the books was in contact with the shipping box -anywhere-, not even a corner or the bottom, so all the books arrived in perfect condition. The international shipping took around 2 weeks, so pretty great too.

Found a hard to get book…

Finding a hard to get book on Booksplease and with it not being an over inflated price was great. Ordering was really easy with updates on despatch. The book was packaged well and in great condition. I will certainly use them again.
