No one can accuse Lewis Sorley of pulling his punches in Westmoreland: The General Who Lost Vietnam. In fact, this book reads like the case for the prosecution before a grand jury, which in a sense it is. And like slowing down to rubberneck at a horrific traffic accident, it’s hard to feel good about reading it.
