The Making of a Quagmire: America and Vietnam During the Kennedy Era

Halberstam, David

NY: Knopf, 1988 A fine copy of this increasingly rare advance review copy (ARC). "Making clear that the United States created its own quagmire in Vietnam, Halberstam's knowledgeable assessment of the U.S.record is so devastating that the reader will soon appreciate why he so discomfited the Kennedy administration, and why that President took the controversial step of trying to get the New York Times to pull him out of Vietnam..." George Kahn. . First Revised Edition. Softcover. Fine. Illus. by Photographs. 6X9 1/4.
