McMaster, an authoritative, highly critical analysis of the arrogance, deception, and controversial decisions at the highest level of government that led to America’s involvement in the Vietnam War“The war in Vietnam was not lost in the field, nor was it lost on the front pages of the New York Times or the college campuses.
