In 1969, as the Vietnam War was raging, a group of student activists announced its intention to overthrow the United States government—by any means necessary. 

Former members of one of America’s most notorious radical movements finally speak candidly about how they “brought the war home,” eluding one of the largest manhunts in FBI history. 
“Hello. I'm going to read a declaration of a state of war. . . Within the next 14 days we will attack a symbol or institution of American injustice.”
—Bernardine Dohrn
