    I’ve got a book titled Almost History: Close Calls, Plan B’s, and Twists of Fate in America’s Past by Roger Bruns that has Nixon’s speech and about a hundred other excerpts grouped under the headings: “Planning for the Worst”, “Forks in the Road”, “Fortuitous Occurrences”, “Close Calls”, “Twists of Irony”, “Plans Thwarted”, “Opportunities Missed; Warnings Unheeded”, “Vagaries of War”, “Code-Breaking Consequences”, “Slippery Truth”, “Urban Legends” and “Lousy Predictions”.
