General William Westmoreland should have been a superb choice to command U.S. forces in Vietnam. He had the credentials: from Eagle Scout at fifteen, he had rocketed up the ranks, becoming, briefly, the Army's youngest lieutenant general. But as commander, Westmoreland was a disaster, failing to grasp the war's complexities and holding firm to a flawed strategy in spite of all evidence and opposition.In this honest but searing portrait of a military man promoted beyond his capabilities, Sorley "makes mincemeat of [the] myth" ( Wall Street Journal) that politicians, the media, or the American public should take the blame for our military failure in Vietnam. For anyone who seeks to understand what happened to us in Vietnam and why, this "blistering indictment" ( Kirkus) is essential reading.
