Description - The United States and the Vietnam War by Walter L. Hixson

More then a mere recounting of battles, military history offers a wide lens for viewing the Vietnam conflict. Among the issues addressed by articles in this volume are strategy, presidential decision making, the nature of 'limited war',the use (and misuse) of air power, and spraying of herbicides to facilitate counterinsurgency warfare. Collectively, these articles flesh out the nature of the Vietnam War, analyzing key decisions, such as Lyndon Johnson's escalation of the conflict, as well as the Tet offensive (1968), a turning point in the war.
