Westmoreland: The General Who Lost Vietnam

A biography of Vietnam general William Westmoreland by the author of "A Better War."
Zitat
"Scalding . . . Sorley, a West Point graduate and retired Army lieutenant colonel, is unsparing in his analysis of Westmoreland." -- "Los Angeles Times"" " "The subtitle says it all: 'The General Who Lost Vietnam' . . . Sorley has stripped away Westmoreland's after-the-fact mythologizing, leaving us with a deeply unflattering portrait of an army careerist who unintentionally did much damage to an institution -- and a country -- that he loved dearly. "Westmoreland" is a valuable addition to the growing 'revisionist' literature that shows the Vietnam War was winnable if we had fought differently." -- Max Boot, "Wall Street Journal"" " "Sweeping . . . [Sorley] pillories the hapless general for what are now seen as horrendous gaffes of counterinsurgency." -- "TIME"" " "A first-rate biography of a second-rate soldier." -- "Washington Times"" " "No American general has ever been more vilified than William C. Westmoreland, our senior military commander in Vietnam from 1964 to 1968 and the only American general to lose a war . . . Lewis Sorley, a distinguished military historian and Vietnam veteran himself, offers a stinging assessment . . . Napoleon supposedly said, 'Don't give me good generals, give me lucky ones.' This well-researched, engrossing, and hard-hitting biography demonstrates that its subject was neither." -- "Cleveland Plain Dealer"" " "An important contribution to the literature of the Vietnam War . . . The research is meticulous and the writing fascinating." -- "Proceedings"" " "A military historian's harsh take on the career of the general most associated with America's most controversial war . . . The general's defenders will have their hands full answering Sorley's blistering indictment." -- "Kirkus Reviews"" ""An engrossing portrait and analysis of how the decisions of one military leader could impact the lives of so many." -- "Library Journal"
