Available on iTunes, Crave
Path To War is a powerful portrait of a political leader facing the burden of responsibility as he makes strategic and military decisions that effect the lives of thousands. Elected President in a landslide victory in 1964, Lyndon B. Johnson was a man of conscience who aspired to be remembered for his progressive social agenda. Instead, he became the symbol of an unpopular war that he never wanted to wage. The film tells the powerful and tragic story of how Johnson was caught between the advisors who persuaded him to pour money and men into Vietnam, and his own vision for uniting the country.
