Comments Lyndon Johnson's War: The Road to Stalemate in Vietnam

    An interesting read looking at the dialogue between Lyndon Johnson and the Vietnam War. It was interesting to note how Johnson perceived this war during his presidency, and after everything realized how much of a mistake it was. For an academic read it was certainly engaging.

    The lesson learned from the book is clear: never, I repeat, never try to focus on two issues on the same time, especially in nation-ruling-scale. Lyndon B. Johnson, tried with his Gun-and-Butter Policy which put the commitment on Vietnam War and Great Society on same time. If only he focused on only one project at a time, he would be remembered in a different light. However, fate is a cruel mistress.

    Larry Berman argued in 1989s Lyndon Johnson’s War that LBJ personally kept the war going, because he feared the political backlash at home if he abandoned the cause.
