Format: Paperback
This book was published in 1965, before the US involvement in VietNam was as great as it ultimately became, so it is out of date in that sense. In November of 1965 I returned from a seven month cruise in the Gulf of Tonkin, where I was actively - if remotely - involved in Operation Rolling Thunder. When I got home I was proud that we had done a good job but found the official US Navy justifications for the conflict to be quite simplistic. So I bought a copy of this book. It did not in itself radicalize me but it did set me on a path of questioning the official position which ultimately led me to involvement in the anti-war movement. Since that time I have read over 50 books on the war and have still to find the definitive answer to the question "Why VietNam?" I doubt that there is one. There are many good books on the war, by people such as Karnow, Kahin, Kattenberg, Herring, Betts, Gelb and others, so I don't recommend going out of your way to get this one, though it does have good coverage of the 1954 Geneva conference, including the full text of the agreement.
