    1. A Bright Shining Lie John Paul Vann and America in Vietnam took Neil Sheehan sixteen years to write and earned him the Pulitzer Prize in 1988 It is the great book about American involvement in Vietnam It has no peer It is the secret decoder ring of America in the late twentieth century It should be required reading for anyone who truly wishes to understand the hubris of this sometimes bumbling colossus.After the War Was Over Hanoi and Saigon is a coda to the earlier book It first appeared in sho [...]
