The author of this fresh look at the Vietnam War was not personally involved in the turmoil. He gives a careful referenced account of Vietnam's background history, the origins of US involvement, the policies of five US Presidents and of the aftermath of the 1973 Paris Agreement. He subscribes to the view that the war was necessary and winnable under better circumstances and leadership. Bibliography and index.
