The Road Not Taken: Edward Lansdale and the American Tragedy in Vietnam

The Road Not Taken is the biography of CIA operative Edward Lansdale, a man many consider responsible for pioneering the “hearts & minds” diplomatic policy of the Vietnam era, an idea that was crushed by larger forces at work in the war effort. In his revealing portrait of Lansdale and opposing views on the war, historian Max Boot presents a picture of how history might have unfolded with a different approach.
