[We] acted according to what we thought were the principles...of this nation....Yet we were wrong, terribly wrong. We owe it to future generations to explain why. These are the words of Robert S. McNamara, chief architect of American foreign policy during the Vietnam years. For 30 years since his resignation as secretary of defense, he has refused public comment on the unpopular, ever-escalating war with which he was so thoroughly identified. Now McNamara tells all, drawing on a wealth of interviews and recently declassified documents to craft this insider's account of the decision-making that led to the Vietnam disaster. Introduction read by Robert S. McNamara.
