It deals centrally with his outspoken disillusionment with the war and his role as a civilian in the pacification programme afterwards where he rose to become the first American civilian to wield a general's command in the war. Neil Sheehan was a Vietnam war correspondent for "United Press International" and the "New York Times" and has won a number of awards for his reporting. In 1971 he obtained the Pentahon Papers, which brought the "Times" the Pulitzer Prize gold medal for meritorious public service.Hide synopsis

Neil Sheehan writes clearly and logically, and he relates history and anecdote with eminently readable verve and detail. I loved this superbly clear and intelligent history of Vietnam/Southeast Asia told through the story of Lt. Colonel John Paul Vann, a remarkable exemplar of an American iconoclast and brilliant, passionately loyal citizen and soldier. What a wonderful book!
