Review of Most Dangerous: Daniel Ellsberg and the Secret History of the Vietnam War by Steve Sheinkin

by Cindy H | Oct 07, 2016
Most Dangerous
If you have ever wanted to know more about the Vietnam War and all of the controversy surrounding it, this is the book for you. You can’t help but get sucked in with all of the intrigue, suspense, and drama surrounding the first war the United States ever lost. As a government insider, Daniel Ellsberg saw firsthand the great differences between how the war was being portrayed to U.S. citizens and what was actually going on. Through his perspective and the recollections of soldiers in the field, taped recordings of presidents and other major government figures, and photographs from the time you really feel like you are watching the events surrounding the Vietnam War unfold. You see how Ellsberg’s perceptions change and he becomes a voice for peace and the leader in exposing the truth behind the government’s actions. I would recommend this book to anyone wanting to know more about the seedier details surrounding the Vietnam War and the United States’ involvement.
