This one really knocked me for a loop. Daniel Ellsberg — a Marine Corps veteran, a State Department official who served in the field in Vietnam, and the man who eventually leaked the Pentagon Papers to the New York Times — has probably seen it all and read it all when comes to the Vietnam War and, more generally the dark underside of American power. And yet, he was shocked by my new book. I still haven’t completely wrapped my head around it, but I’m grateful for the humbling blurb.
If you’re interested in pre-ordering Kill Anything That Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam, you can do so at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, and Indie Bound.
