Om Best and the Brightest

David Halberstam's masterpiece, the defining history of the making of the Vietnam tragedy, with a new Foreword by Senator John McCain."A rich, entertaining, and profound reading experience.'The New York Times Using portraits of America' s flawed policy makers and accounts of the forces that drove them, The Best and the Brightest reckons magnificently with the most important abiding question of our country' s recent history: Why did America become mired in Vietnam, and why did we lose? As the definitive single-volume answer to that question, this enthralling book has never been superseded. It is an American classic.Praise for The Best and the Brightest';The most comprehensive saga of how America became involved in Vietnam. . . . It is also theIliadof the American empire and theOdysseyof this nation's search for its idealistic soul.The Best and the Brightestis almost like watching an Alfred Hitchcock thriller.'The Boston Globe';Deeply moving . . . We cannot help but feel the compelling power of this narrative. . . . Dramatic and tragic, a chain of events overwhelming in their force, a distant war embodying illusions and myths, terror and violence, confusions and courage, blindness, pride, and arrogance.'LosAngelesTimes';A fascinating tale of folly and self-deception . . . [An] absorbing, detailed, and devastatingly caustic tale of Washington in the days of the Caesars.'The Washington Post Book World';Seductively readable . . . It is a staggeringly ambitious undertaking that is fully matched by Halberstam's performance. . . . This is in all ways an admirable and necessary book.'Newsweek';A story every American should read.'St. Louis Post-Dispatch
