I highly recommed James Reston's analysis of the way Washington is thinking about the dilemma of fighting a war without declaring war. ("The doctrine of 'limited war' still predominates") The focus is mostly on Germany, with Japan as an afterthought. This despite the low-percentage negotiations now going on with the Japanese.
Reston was still writing for the Times in the sixties, I'm pretty sure. I wonder if he covered the national debate on "limited war" during the Vietnam era.

Better known as Scotty Reston. He was best known later in his career as an apologists for the Kennedys, including Teddy after the murder of Mary Jo. In fact, he could always be counted to run interference for the eastern elites.
I don't recall if he turned against the Vietnam war during LBJ or Nixon. But he certainly would have been on board for JFK.
