 Amazon.com: A Time for War: The United States and Vietnam, 1941-1975: Books: Robert D. Schulzinger   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-13)
The war in Vietnam generated strong emotions then and still does for some people, but I appreciate that the author tells the story of the war in a fairly straight forward manner.
Schulzinger believes that the United States could not have won the war; that we got involved out of misguided good intentions rather than evil motives; and that the Vietminh and Vietcong were homegrown liberation movements, not puppets of the Soviets or Chinese.
The United States was committed to participation in a civil war in Vietnam without guarantees of success." This opinion is rubbish.
