According to a press release, it will be written in the same “‘boots-on-the ground’ spirit that Dan Rather has pioneered in his long and illustrious journalism career,” and will range from JFK’s assassination to Vietnam, Watergate, and the wars in Afghanistan and and Iraq. The company tentatively plans to publish in Spring 2012.

Count me in as a reader: I’ve always admired Rather. How about all of you?
