Mr. McNamara tells of his indictment of his father's generation in the Vietnam War and anti-communism in general.  McNamara for most of his life is seemingly estranged from his parents, especially his father.   McNamara : while telling of his opposition to the actions of his father and the mainstream political ideas of the day more importantly tells a very human tale of alienation and struggle to become independent from the shadow of a successful parent.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, even though I found it distressing to read. I've known too many sons and daughters of men who didn't come home from that war. War is a racket and people like Mr. McNamara benefit from.
