The Fog of War is a 20th century fable, a tragic Horatio Alger story of an American dreamer who rose from humble origins to the heights of political power. He was witness to many of the crucial events of the 20th century: the crippling Depression of the 1930s; the industrialization of the war years; the construction of the most complex war machine in history, the B-29; his involvement in a new idea of corporate management and a new American meritocracy. He was also an idealist who saw his dreams and ideals horribly challenged by the role he has played in history. Although strictly speaking, neither a work of biography nor a work of history, The Fog of War has produced important, new biographical and historical material. (Errol Morris)
