Ignore the author's opinion on this book, then read the three chapters on the JFK Administration in Richard Parker's outstanding bio on John Kenneth Galbraith, then read Andrew Cohen's incredible book, Two Days in June, then David Talbot's extraordinary book, Brothers: The Hidden History of the Kennedy Years, and finally, Donald Gibson's amazing book, Battling Wall Street: the Kennedy presidency. The author's conclusions are most absurd. [And prior to JFK's assassination he sent out memos, read by a number of us in the military, although sent to State Department via military transmissions, ordering the withdrawal of those 16,500 to 16,800 advisors by the end of November, 1963!]
Although written at teen-age level, it presents the players, politics and emotions of the time in simple declarative sentences about six principle players. The overall conclusion of the author is that the war was a tragic mistake, but he also mentions that others have different opinions. Well done; I'd recommend it to anybody--especially for those not living in that era.
