A Companion to the Vietnam War

A Companion to the Vietnam War contains twenty-four definitive essays on America's longest and most divisive foreign conflict. These historigraphical and narrative essays by leading historians examine the war in its most important contexts. The broad thematic coverage of the Companion includes the political strategy of three American presidents, the American military tactics and their consequences, the adjoining wars in Laos and Cambodia, the American home fornt and antiwar movement, and the intersections of race, class, and gender in both America and Vietnam.

This resource represents the best current scholarship on one of the most controversial and influential episodes in modern American history. It also contains an expanded bibliography of hundreds of secondary sources to guide further research. For students, scholars, and general readers of Vietnam War studies, this Companion is a vital resource.
