About this title: A compelling account of the demise of America's "victory culture", from Hiroshima to the Gulf War. "America Victorious has been our country's postulate since its birth. Tom Engelhardt, with a burning clarity, recounts the end of this fantasy, from the split atom to Vietnam. . . . As powerful as a Joe Louis jab to the solar plexus".--Studs Turkel, author of "The Good War".
