前美國國防部長麥納馬拉一手策劃統籌並指揮這曾一度被稱為 "麥納馬拉的戰爭" 的越南戰事,晚年不再肯定認同自己當年的立場。

The VN war was once called the McNamara's War, though he was the architect of the VN war, Mr. McNamara took a stand against his own conduct in his later years. This comprehensive article sheds light of a war that had changed many of our lives forever.
