THE PENTAGON PAPERS The Secret History of the Vietnam War

by | Read by James Anderson Foster

History • 37 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

With energy and focus, James Anderson Foster does a yeoman's job narrating this one-time classified study of the missteps, miscalculations, and misinformation that led to one of the most divisive chapters in American history. First published by the NEW YORK TIMES in 1971, THE PENTAGON PAPERS created an immediate sensation in detailing how the military and political brain trusts of four U.S. presidential administrations (from Truman to Johnson) embroiled the nation in an ever-escalating military conflict in Southeast Asia. Long (37 hours) and occasionally repetitive, this audiobook remains essential listening for anyone wanting to understand the Vietnam era. Within his powerful and devastating narration, Foster delivers a quote from the early 1960s that might crushingly sum up the whole affair: "The optimism proved misplaced."
