Henry Kissinger presents a seamless chronicle of the policies and personalities that thrust the US into war and explains in unprecedented detail the diplomatic efforts he employed both publicly and in private to extricate America from Vietnam. From his behind-the-scenes role to his key positions as President Nixon's foreign policy and national security adviser and later his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger was at the centre of America's involvement in Vietnam. In ENDING THE VIETNAM WAR, he reveals what actually happened: what was said in high level meetings and in the conversations he had with President Nixon; how policy was made; the thinking behind major decisions and the negotiations that led to the Paris Peace table and much more. Supported by meticulous documentation and filled with sharply observed portraits of significant players, ENDING THE VIETNAM WAR is the story of the war from one of those who shaped its course.
