4.0 out of 5 stars PP
This book covers but a small part of the overall deception of the government in the Vietnam War. It does paint an excellent picture of the inner workings and the thinking of corrupt officials up to and including the president.

1.0 out of 5 stars Go read the Pentagon Papers yourself
It's dated; the full papers were released in 2011, and there are also enough autobiographies available, particularly McNamara's "In Retrospect" so as to be able to synthesize an appropriate conclusion of your own.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why is Amazon hosting this material?, December 3, 2010
This review is from: The Pentagon Papers (Paperback)
Amazon pulled Wikileaks from their site because it represented classified government documents. So what is the Pentagon Papers still doing on this site?

Oh right, Amazon wasn't around in 1971 to cave in to pressure from right wing politicians to betray the First Amendment right to publish classified materials that have been leaked by others.

5.0 out of 5 stars Vietnam Knowledge is power, April 30, 2014

This review is from: The Pentagon Papers (Paperback)
Received the book right away and the book is fabulous. Good reading and historical perspective about a time that still causes polarization today. A war that should never have been fought.
