4. General Maxwell Taylor: The Sword and the Pen
Hardcover (457 pages) by John Martin Taylor (Doubleday)
The most prominent soldier since MacArthur, General Maxwell Taylor (1901-1987) enjoyed a controversial and varied career that placed him at the center of the most important events of recent times. Jack Taylor's incisive biography provides an intriguing sketch of modern history as lived by his father. As a junior officer, General Taylor traveled extensively in China with colonel "Vinegar Joe" Stilwell. In addition to leading the 101st Airborne Division in the Normandy invasion during WWII, Taylor risked his life on a clandestine mission to arrange the armistice with Italian Prime Minister Pietro Badaglio. One of the original three "Wise Men", Taylor served a tumultuous term as Army Chief of Staff under Eisenhower, but his sharp disagreements with official policy forced him to resign to write THE UNCERTAIN TRUMPET, on of the most influential books on military strategy. Impressed with Taylor, outspokenness and dedication, President John F. Kennedy appointed him special military advisor during the Bay of Pigs operation. Taylor went on to become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff under Johnson after he played a crucial advisory role in the Cuban missile crisis. Taylor's most controversial role, however, was as ambassador to Saigon during the mid-sixties. While antiwar protesters marched and chanted against him, Taylor remained firm in his belief that strategically the United States had to bomb North Vietnam "to change a losing game". Personal, yet forthright, GENERAL MAXWELL TAYLOR is a brilliant appraisal, written with the intimacy of a son, the clarity of a seasoned author, and the objectivity of a historian.

7. The Certain Trumpet: Maxwell Taylor and the American Experience in Vietnam (Association of the United States Army)
Hardcover (256 pages) by Douglas Kinnard (Brassey's Inc)
Maxwell Taylor was a transitional figure in American military history. He was the last of the World War II heroic generals and the first of the new breed - the "managerial" generals. As a solder-statesman, he was in the very top echelon of the Vietnam decision-makers; as a four-star general during the Kennedy administration, he served as Army Chief-of-Staff and then as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs-of-Staff; as a civilian, he was ambassador to Saigon and, after Kennedy's assassination, a special consultant to Johnson. This book is not just a biography, but uses Taylor as a prism through which to tell the story of high-level American decision-making and its consequences. It offers an intimate look at the White House thought process during a critical time in US history.

8. Triumph Forsaken: The Vietnam War, 1954-1965 (v. 1)
Hardcover (512 pages) by Mark Moyar (Cambridge University Press)
Drawing on a wealth of new evidence from all sides, Triumph Forsaken overturns most of the historical orthodoxy on the Vietnam War. Through the analysis of international perceptions and power, it shows that South Vietnam was a vital interest of the United States. The book provides many new insights into the overthrow of Ngo Dinh Diem in 1963 and demonstrates that the coup negated the South Vietnamese government's tremendous, and hitherto unappreciated, military and political gains between 1954 and 1963. After Diem's assassination, President Lyndon Johnson had at his disposal several aggressive policy options that could have enabled South Vietnam to continue the war without a massive US troop infusion, but he ruled out these options because of faulty assumptions and inadequate intelligence, making such an infusion the only means of saving the country.
