    This book is a piece of the American history The story of the Vietnam war has been told many times but this book shows the scaffolding behind the decisions taken at the highest level of the American administration from Presidents Truman all the way to NixonThe said story starts with the Americans trying a presence to shield South East Asia from the Communist influence; then it becomes how to help directly some countries in the area; then how to fight a war while saying there was no war; then how to win a war impossible to win; then how to leave without saying the war was lost; then how to act as it nothing had happenedIn conclusion this is the story of a big mistake which dragged for decadesThe Pentagon Papers sits the reader right inside the White House and the Pentagon to witness the decisions taken to put in place a series of measures directed mainly to fool the world It is shameful in some parts as when respected Presidents signed international agreements only to tell ten minutes later their personnel to start working on the contrary that was agreed And a long etceteraIt is not an easy book It is very long and some parts are tedious; in some parts it is painful to read how many deaths were caused by so many evitable lies But yet again it is a VIP chair behind the forces that were making history It is a history lesson

    We all know the existence of the Pentagon Papers but I suspect not many of us have had a look through themIt generally shows that successive administrations from the end of WW2 through much of the Pres Johnson years felt compelled to do something about indo china becoming communist They all had grave doubts on how to go about it It seems that US Policy was built on hope and the need to do something than on a realistic outcome?This material is often dry to read through as the original documents are presented but should be reuired reading for anyone who wants to get a better understanding of those years Also reuired reading for any aspiring national politician of any country
