LBJ's War
A president bound for greatness. A ruinous Vietnam war. How did Lyndon Johnson lose his way? LBJ’s War is a documentary in oral history form, constructed from secretly taped White House phone calls and rare archival interviews with those who were there when this history was being made, and who had a hand in its making. Major funding provided by the National Endowment for the Humanities. WE RECOMMEND LISTENING IN ORDER, STARTING WITH EPISODE 1.
