Lyndon Johnson's War

Lyndon Johnson's War

By Larry Berman

Norton, 1989, 254 pp.

This richly documented sequel to the author's Planning A Tragedy presents a devastating picture of Lyndon Johnson victimized by sycophantic advisers, of pressure from the American military almost amounting to blackmail and of the president's own intellectual limitations. An essential volume for any collection on the history of the Vietnam War.
