A Bright Shining Lie: John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: Neil Sheehan

Narrated By: Robertson Dean

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Date: August 2009

Duration: 35 hours 48 minutes

Summary:

25th ANNIVERSARY EDITION. One of the most acclaimed books of our time—the definitive Vietnam War exposé.

Winner of the Pulitzer Prize and the National Book Award.

When he came to Vietnam in 1962, Lieutenant Colonel John Paul Vann was the one clear-sighted participant in an enterprise riddled with arrogance and self-deception, a charismatic soldier who put his life and career on the line in an attempt to convince his superiors that the war should be fought another way. By the time he died in 1972, Vann had embraced the follies he once decried. He died believing that the war had been won.

In this magisterial book, a monument of history and biography that was awarded the National Book Award and the Pulitzer Prize for Nonfiction, a renowned journalist tells the story of John Vann—'the one irreplaceable American in Vietnam'—and of the tragedy that destroyed a country and squandered so much of America's young manhood and resources.

    Excellent book but it would be helpful to have ability to access individual chapters as with other audiobooks.
