Book Description

This book offers a dispassionate strategic examination of the Vietnam conflict that challenges the conventional wisdom that South Vietnam could not survive as an independent non-communist entity over the long term regardless of how the United States conducted its military- political effort in Indochina.

Table of Contents

Walton has provided diplomatic and military historians with a provocative and creative view of the Vietnam War...the book should spur debate on the causes of the United States military failure in South-East Asia."
