Lessons in Disaster: McGeorge Bundy and the Path to War in Vietnam by Gordon M. Goldstein

 Among the surprising revelations in this retrospective analysis of America's path to war: late in life Bundy came to regret his hawkish ways, although he maintained to the end that the presidents, not their advisers, were primarily responsible for the outcome of the war. Vietnam, he said, was overall, a war we should not have fought. Publishers Weekly
