REVIEWS:

“A short, fact-filled and thoughtful book. Palmer manages to keep a balance that will prove helpful to the scholar, the soldier, and the man in the street.”

American Historical Review

“This book is a page-turner.... It may even be an understatement to say that this is probably the most complete and useful after-action report written by any American military commander in this Nation's 208-year history.”

Armed Forces Journal

“Perhaps the best single account of the Vietnam War by a military man.... A tough, dispassionate, common-sense analysis of America's military role in Vietnam. ”

Baltimore Sun

“Palmer writes with a clarity and candor remarkable in any military memoir, offering severe (but not rancorous) judgments on himself and his colleagues.... This book will stand as the indispensable resource for students of the war and the American defense establishment that has survived it.”

New York Times Book Review

“A senior military commander's honest, unsentimental account of the Vietnam war. ”

Wall Street Journal

“If you read only one book about Vietnam, this should be it.”

Washingtonian
