Description - The Best and the Brightest by David Halberstam

"A rich, entertaining, and profound reading experience". -- The New York Times"[The] most comprehensive saga of how America became involved in Vietnam. It is also the Iliad of the American empire and the Odyssey of this nation's search for its idealistic soul. THE BEST AND THE BRIGHTEST is almost like watching an Alfred Hitchcock thriller". -- The Boston Globe"Deeply moving . . . We cannot help but feel the compelling power of this narrative . . . . Dramatic and tragic, a chain of events overwhelming in their force, a distant war embodying illusions and myths, terror and violence, confusions and courage, blindness, pride, and arrogance". -- Los Angeles Times"Most impressive, superb -- perceptive, literary, multidimensional". -- The New York Times Book Review"A story which every American should read". -- St. Louis Post-Dispatch
