Summary
"Although historians are increasingly giving Reagan and John Paul II due credit for their roles in ending the Cold War, Kengor reveals the depth and significance of the bond between the president and the pope. New details based on the author's unique access to Reagan insiders and his tireless archival research are provided. The role of the Marian apparition at Fatima on May 13, 1917 is explored as key to understanding both the bond between JP II and Reagan and the narrative of what they considered a divine plan to end communism in the USSR and Eastern Bloc, especially Poland, which is seen as the linchpin"-- Provided by publisher
