Damning indictment of army close-mindedness in Vietnam. Illuminating to read after Afghanistan/Iraq books where you see the exact problems happened before with the same results.

A must for any Army officer. The critical look at the failings of the United States Army during Vietnam was completed in 1981. Was struct by how many of the same leadership shortcomings, and career protection actions still ring true today and in today's Army.

For those who want to buck the system - take this book as a warning and blueprint of what to do and what to avoid.
