In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam.

McNamara, Robert and VanDeMark, Brian.

Picture of In Retrospect: The Tragedy and Lessons of Vietnam.
To the baby boomers who came of age during the Vietnam War, McNamara's actions at the time spoke louder than the words of contrition he would utter three decades after 58,000 Americans had lost their lives in Vietnam. John F. Kennedy’s former Secretary of Defence takes an apologetic and critical look at the decisions he and others made regarding the US involvement in Vietnam. He describes the anticommunist political climate of the era, mistaken assumptions of foreign policy, and misjudgements on the part of the military that combined to create the Vietnam debacle.
