The Man Who Sent the A-Bomb to Russia
Major George Racey Jordan was in charge of shipping U.S. war materials to Russia during World War II.

At first, Congress did not believe him, but his diary filled with dates, shipping manifestos, and names of pilots who flew the missions, removed all doubt. 55 minutes.
