Shot on location from Geneva to Reykjavik, from the Kremlin to the halls of the State Department in Washington, D.C., the sweep of history is revealed through the memories of Shultz, former cabinet members, personal witnesses, journalists, historians, and exclusive archival materials. The series brings to life the gripping tensions of these times; the fear of war in the Middle East, the shock of the barracks bombing that killed 220 Marines, and the delicate manipulations of summitry that ended the Cold War and helped determine the future of peace on the planet.
Throughout, Turmoil & Triumph reveals how George Shultz’s relentless determination combined with his use of national strength made him one of the most effective Secretaries of State in the nation’s history, respected and admired by lawmakers on both sides of the aisle. The series also looks at the forces that shaped this remarkable man, from his boyhood in New Jersey, through his service in the military, his rise to Dean of the University of Chicago School of Business to his work today as a passionate and tireless advocate for nuclear disarmament.
