The drama continues in this Part 5 episode.

Kissinger is briefing Nixon on his secret visit in July 1971. Not everything was nailed down in this one single visit.

It would take another trip in October to almost but not quite get all the negotiations and preparations taken care of. Nixon announced this breakthrough to the American people in prime time.

The secret was out.

The problem of how to handle Taiwan was still not settled and a lot remained to be discussed. Lots of action going on...including an attempted coup by Lin Biao.
