Summary
In October 1973, America was transfixed by a battle of wills between President Richard Nixon and a 61-year-old law professor. Archibald Cox was serving in a new post - Special Prosecutor - to investigate the Watergate break-in. Quietly but resolutely he asked the White House to release tapes of important conversations. Facing a Supreme Court deadline, Nixon ordered Cox to be fired. The top two officials of the Justice Department resigned in protest. Overnight, public opinion swung against Nixon and turned Cox into an American hero
