forceful and cerebral

defense secretary

who helped lead the nation

into the maelstrom of Vietnam

wrestling with the war’s

moral consequences

 

(...)

was the most influential

defense secretary

of the 20th century.

 

Serving Presidents

John F. Kennedy

and Lyndon B. Johnson

from 1961 to 1968,

he oversaw hundreds

of military missions,

thousands of nuclear weapons

and billions of dollars

in military spending

and foreign arms sales.

 

He also enlarged

the defense secretary’s role,

handling foreign diplomacy

and the dispatch of troops

to enforce civil rights in the South.
