A short, well-written, anecdotal history, from an insider's perspective, about the process by which Lyndon Johnson was persuaded to try to disengage the US from Vietnam. Although there is any number of excellent books about how the US got into Vietnam, or about how the US conducted its war in Vietnam, or about the internal machinations of JFK's and LBJ's principal subordinates (they were the same), I have not yet encountered another book about the process leading to a recognition of the futility of the war. While I don't think this is the definitive book on the topic, it is a useful starting point.

This book was assigned reading when I was in college. I was very impressed with it then, so I thought I’d reread. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the same. When I was younger, the Viet Nam War was raging and I (along with the rest of my pompous generation) was quite naïve!

Outstanding analysis of the Vietnam trauma. I highly recommend this book.
