A stethoscope on the heartbeat of history.

If there is one movie that ought to be studied by military and civilian leaders around the world at this treacherous historical moment, it is The Fog of War.
- Stephen Holden, The New York Times
The interviews were filmed a year before the war in Iraq. That so many of McNamara's lessons have come into play imbue The Fog of War with an eerie clarity.
- Jeff Strickler, Minneapolis Star Tribune


The Fog of War is a 20th century fable, a story of an American dreamer who rose from humble origins to the heights of political power. Robert S. McNamara was both witness to and participant in many of the crucial events of the 20th century: the crippling Depression of the 1930s; the industrialization of the war years; the development of a different kind of warfare based on air power and the creation of a new American meritocracy. He was also an idealist who saw his dreams and ideals challenged by the role he 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
