The Vietnam War left a disturbing legacy not only because of the tremendous loss of life on both sides. It was also the longest military struggle in American history and the first war the U.S. ever lost. Why did the United States become entangled in the Vietnam War, a conflict that went on for 25 years? The Tragedy of Vietnam is a brief and highly accessible account of the key decisions that resulted in the American entanglement in Vietnam. Hearden provides an extensive background of the history of Vietnam and French colonialism and the U.S. vision for achieving a new world order that kept communism out of Southeast Asia.
