reviewed The Living and the Dead : Robert McNamara and Five Lives of a Lost War on
Leaders, politicians and bureaucrats make impersonal decisions of going to war. This book reveals decisions made about war the way they were made for automobile design and sales. The effect such decisions have on humans is poignantly described here. Heartbreaking stories of just a few individuals are described; what of all the others that we know nothing about?
