A compelling, revealing analysis of the generation of American males who came of draft age during the Vietnam War. The authors were high staff members on President Ford's clemency board. They demonstrate, among many other things, that wealthy, educated, well-connected men had many legal ways of avoiding military service in general and Vietnam in particular. There was a high correlation between low socioeconomic status and Vietnam combat service. An important book.
