From the program's description: "In 1950, Truman administration officials arrested Julius and Ethel Rosenberg for conspiracy to commit espionage. Specifically, the serious charges concerned passing information about the atomic bomb to the Soviet Union and thereby causing the Korean War.
Upon his inauguration in January 1953, Dwight Eisenhower inherited both the unpopular war and the problematic case. While he managed to bring the war to a close, the president struggled to manage the global image of the United States concerning the Rosenbergs. He had two opportunities to weigh in on whether Julius and Ethel would live or die.
How he grappled with this case provides a fascinating lens into Eisenhower’s presidential decision-making process."
