Summary
The author weaves together the lives of Annapolis graduates John McCain, James Webb, Oliver North, Robert McFarlane, and Jon Poindexter to reveal how the Vietnam War continues to haunt America. Casting all five men as metaphors for a legion of well-meaning if ill-starred warriors, he probes the fault line between those who fought the war and those who used money, wit, and connections to avoid battle
