"All The President's Men" tells the story of the investigation into the break-in at the Watergate Hotel/office complex which ultimately led to the only resignation of a U.S. president. Written by Carl Bernstein & Bob Woodward and made into a motion picture (starring Dustin Hoffman & Robert Redford), it chronicles their investigations for the Washington Post tracing the links from the break-in of the Democratic National Headquarters through "dirty tricks", "plumbers" and illegal slush funds from the "burglars" on up to the Oval Office. A must read especially when viewed in the historical context of Iran-Contra and other government cover ups.
