Abstract:

For five incredible weeks, millions of Americans tuned in to watch as U.S. Senator Joseph McCarthy's crusade to expose Communist subversion in the U.S. Army, backfired against the pressure of televised media. With Roy Cohn at his side, McCarthy's innuendos and unsubstantiated claims against the Army were no match for Army Special Counsel, Joe Welch. The meek and mild spoken Welch unmasked McCarthyism and further pushed Joe McCarthy into political oblivion.
