McNamara and LBJ himself. 1964: A pivotal year in American history-a landmark civil rights bill was passed, America began its involvement in Vietnam...and one man sat at the center of it all, determined to lift the country out of the ashes and rebuild it into The Great Society-by any means necessary.
