The Living and the Dead

The Living and The Dead

Paul Hendrickson



“Students of the Vietnman War will appreciate a survey which combines strong literary talent with exhaustive historical research and insights. This is no cursory overview but a book which has been ten years in the making: an in-depth survey which uses Robert McNamara’s decision-making process as a foundation for considering wartime decisions and how they altered the lives of others. The result blends social commentary, McNamara biographical notes, and a perspective which goes beyond the usual military facts.” — Midwest Book Review
