Those who were responsible for planning the Vietnam War, those who fought in it, those who fought against it, and those who reported it have had ample time to reflect on its meaning and on their personal involvement. In Legacy of Discord, skilled interviewer Gil Dorland discusses serious, unresolved issues relevant to the war with Peter Arnett, Mike Davison, Daniel Ellsberg, Alexander Haig, David Halberstam, Tom H ayden, Le Ly Hayslip, Roger Hilsman, John Kerry, Henry Kissinger, Anthony Lake, Cau Le, Barry McCaffrey, John McCain, H. R. McMaster, Thomas Polgar, Norman Schwarzkopf, James Webb, and William Westmoreland. The candor of the interviews will surprise reade rs, as will the perspectives gained with hindsight. And these may be the final published comments on Vietnam by several of the participants. For the many veterans, students, and others still seeking to understand this great national tragedy, Legacy of Discord is a book of historic importance."--BOOK JACKET.
