My Copy of The War Managers. The death on July 29 of retired Army general and professor Douglas Kinnard at the age of 91 reminded me of the vital quality of integrity and truth-telling, especially in life-and-death military settings.

The second work provides the best view to date of the opinions of 108 Army generals who fought the Vietnam War. The generals' responses to standard questions were extremely varied, indicating an absence.
