    York Times correspondent who teaches journalism at the University of Southern California focuses on American policy making in Washington particularly during the Johnson administration But he also includes fascinating material on concurrent planning by our Vietnamese allies and by the Vietnamese communists Langguth tells his story chronologically he offers no surprises But Langguth does bring something new to the table insights into some of the war s most pivotal events gleaned from interviews with lesser known but consequential American and Vietnamese eyewitnesses That group includes William Kohlmann of the CIA Viet Cong Lt Ta Minh Kham Foreign Service Officer Paul Kattenburg North Vietnamese Army Col Ta Minh Kham Nguyen Dinh Tu a one time South Vietnamese newspaper reporter and Jack Smith the veteran ABC TV News reporter who fought with the U S First Cavalry Division at the 1965 Battle of the Ia Drang Langguth also interviewed well known pivotal players and mined the best primary and secondary accounts With an eye for the telling anecdote Langguth uses dozens of individual stories to create this personality driven saga The result is a long compelling narrative The book is short on analysis but sets out the politically charged policy making story of the Vietnam War in a complete and seamless manner Comments Off on A J Langguth 1933 2014 Posted on September 2nd 2014 in Book News History In the Classroom Journalism Obituaries Comments are closed Contents Unsung Heroes Art Exhibit in Boston Bobbie Ann Mason Receives Kentucky Literary Honor Creative Writing Contest The Jeff Sharlet Memorial Award for Veterans Veterans in Politics radio The Photography of Muhammad Abdus Sabur in NYC New VN War Exhibit Opens at Army Heritage Center in Carlisle Pa New HBO Doc on Richard Holbrooke Jefferson Starship Free Concert in D C Nov 8 American Boys
