Description
Dereliction of Duty is a Stunning New Analysis of how and why the United States became involved in a disastrous all-out war in Southeast Asia. Fully and convincingly researched, and based on recently released transcripts and personal accounts of crucial meetings, confrontations, and decisions, it is the only book that fully re-creates what happened. It also pinpoints the policies and decisions that got the United States into the morass, reveals who made these decisions, and explains the motives behind them, disproving the published theories of other historians and excuses of the participants.

Focusing on a fascinating cast of characters -- President Johnson, Robert McNamara, General Maxwell Taylor, McGeorge Bundy, and other top aides -- to reveal how they deliberately deceived the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Congress, and the American public, Dereliction of Duty is an explosive and authoritative look at the U.S. involvement in Vietnam that is sure to generate controversy and interest.
