Two reporters were assigned to cover what seemed a routine burglary in the opulent Watergate building in down town Washington. It was the first in what must be the most devastating political detective story of the century.
Here is their amazing story, from their first suspicions, through the tortuous trail of false leads, lies, secrecy and high-level pressure, to the final moments when they were able to put the pieces together and write the expose that won them a Pulitzer Prize.
This is the definitive history, written by two determined journalists, of how a scandal was uncovered which still reverberates throughout the world.
