In 1984, less than a decade after the fall of Saigon, journalist David Halberstam claimed “the American military apparatus in Vietnam [was] a vast lying machine, telling Washington what Washington wanted to hear and insisted upon hearing. The purpose of this lying machine was to propagandize our alleged progress in the war and to convince Congress and the American public to support the war.”

"The First Grand Strategists? War and Politics in Ancient Egypt and Iraq" with Garrett Fagan

Co-sponsored by the Clements Center, Thomas Jefferson Society, and the Department of History
Wednesday, Apr 23, 2014 | 12:15 pm | Eastwoods Room, Texas Union

In this lecture Garrett G. Fagan considers the geopolitical and military situation in the Ancient Near East, especially in the Early Dynastic III Period of Sumer (ca. 2500-2100 BCE) and the Late Bronze Age (ca. 1500-1100 BCE), and explores what the evidence tells us about any supposed "Grand Strategy" the various players were adhering to. He also asks the more basic question of whether or not such early states even had the apparatus to formulate "Grand Strategy" in the first place.
