Book Overview

When looking back at the long history of United States involvement in Vietnam, many have asked the question Why were we there? There have been a number of answers; a U.S. presence in Vietnam was instrumental in opening up trade for Japan, creating a more capitalist world after 1945, and even stabilizing France during World War I. Of course, as war dragged on and more and more Americans were wounded or killed, many felt that there was no possible justification for the horrors taking place in this small Southeast Asian country.

How did we keep expanding the war? And how did we finally manage to get out? The Vietnam Wars is a comprehensive, balanced view of our troubled history with Vietnam, one that is vividly echoed in world events today.
