A Review Essay of H. R. McMaster's "Dereliction of Duty"
James J. Wirtz reviews H.R. McMaster's "Dereliction of Duty", which argues that the Joint Chiefs of Staff failed to devise an effective strategy in Vietnam. He questions McMaster's claim that the Joint Chiefs quickly recognized that U.S. forces had only limited prospects for success in Southeast Asia and failed to inform the Johnson administration about their reservations concerning American military intervention in Southeast Asia.
