Summary
Begins immediately following his victorious election to the Presidency, Lyndon Johnson's dreams for "The Great Society" and his vision for civil rights in America was devastated by the impact of the Vietnam War. A war he didn't start, but which he seemed unable to end. Torn between the recommendation of increased bombing to win and a nation torn apart by the deaths of young Americans overseas and the protest of those who stayed behind
