"Conflict of Myths is an in-depth devastating critique of how the U.S. government and its military services approached and misconceived the problems of guerilla warfare and counterinsurgency conflict in general, and in Vietnam in particular. It is also a first-rate overview built on original sources of how military institutions make and revise strategic doctrine. Finally, it is a concise treatment of the nature of pre-Vietnam, twentieth-century low-intensity military conflict which will be a useful starting point for both scholars and practitioners interested in the subject." --David A. Rosenberg,Department of Strategy,Naval War College "This brilliant new book offers a plausible explanation for American military strategy in Vietnam, particularly the bombing efforts along the Ho Chi Minh Trail, the Rolling Thunder Campaign in North Vietnam and explains why we trained, structured, and equipped the South Vietnamese Army in the American image. Cable offers not only solid research, but also considerable insight and a marvelous writing style. It is most encouraging to find a scholar concerned with national security affairs who is willing to do solid research on a difficult subject. Cable has tackled a difficult, emotion-laden subject crucial to the most likely future conflicts that may draw American involvement. Must reading!" --Colonel Dennis Drew,Director, Airpower Research Institute,Air University
