Summary
When he came to Vietnam in 1962, Lieutenant Colonel John Paul Vann was the one clear-sighted participant in an enterprise riddled with arrogance and self-deception, a charismatic soldier who put his life and career on the line in an attempt to convince his superiors that the war should be fought another way. By the time he died in 1972, Vann had embraced the follies he once decried. He died believing that the war had been won. In this book, a monument of history and biography ... a journalist tells the story of John Vann ... and of the tragedy which destroyed the country and squandered so much of America's young manhood and resources
