Determined to Persist: General Earle Wheeler, the Joint Chiefs of Staff, and the Military’s Foiled Pursuit of Victory in Vietnam

Acrimony and calls for resignations over the recent US defeat in Afghanistan evoke painful memories of the Vietnam War, the nadir of civilian-military relations when the Joint Chiefs of Staff decided to resign en masse. Former U.S. Army Heritage and Education Center Director Colonel (Retired) Mark A. Viney’s groundbreaking new book, Determined to Persist, overturns long-held, inaccurate perceptions of the Joint Chiefs of Staff’s role in Vietnam policymaking and gives voice to the longest-serving Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff who shredded his memoirs in disgust over Vietnam.
