Vanity Fair article on US invasion in '64

And the sub-headline promises a review of a flurry of new books on the 50th anniversary, but he only discusses one at any length, then glances at another before quoting extensively from Albert Goldman's Lennon book from the eighties! Plus, his final summary sentence steals liberally from the very end of Philip Norman's "Shout!" book, in my opinion.

Other than the date slip, not a bad article though. Funny they got the date of their landing right but the date of the first appearance on Sullivan wrong.
