      LBJ's War is a new, limited-edition podcast that unearths previously unheard audio that helps us better understand the course of the Vietnam War and how Lyndon Johnson found himself where he did.   Lyndon B. Johnson, 36th U.S. president, who championed civil rights and the ‘Great Society’ but unsuccessfully oversaw the Vietnam War. A moderate Democrat and vigorous leader in the Senate, he was elected vice president in and acceded to the presidency in upon the assassination of President John F. Kennedy.

        That sensational New York Times story about LBJ saving America from nuclear war in Vietnam is wrong A recent book and article makes a mountain out of contingency planning. LBJ's most grievous failure, according to Herring, was his neglecting to give strategic guidelines to military and civilian representatives running the operations and pacification programs in the field. Impressively argued, this study constitutes a solid addition to our understanding of the Vietnam War and a president. (June).
