The Vietnam War
A Graphic HistoryDownloadable Audiobook - 2015
When Senator Edward Kennedy declared, "Iraq is George Bush' s Vietnam," everyone understood. The Vietnam War has become the touchstone for U.S. military misadventures-- a war lost on the home front although never truly lost on the battlefront. During the pivotal decade of 1962 to 1972, U.S. involvement rose from a few hundred advisers to a fighting force of more than one million. This same period saw the greatest schism in American society since the Civil War, a generational divide pitting mothers and fathers against sons and daughters who protested the country' s ever-growing military involvement in Vietnam. Meanwhile, well-intentioned decisions in Washington became operational orders with tragic outcomes in the rice paddies, jungles, and villages of Southeast Asia.
