    Book details

'No more Vietnams!' They goes up in the press, on the street, and even inside the Pentagon, whenever the U.S. prepares for conflict. Have the lessons of Vietnam been learned and what are they anyway? A readable and authoritative analysis explains what went so terribly wrong giving every issue a head-on treatment: America's inexperience in guerilla warfare: the political debacle of being an 'undeclared war: ' the misuse of the tank inadequate airborne firepower: and the battles known as Hamburger Hill, Khe Sanh, and the Tet Offensive. Also covered are the My Lai massacre, tensions between draftees and regulars, the effects of Agent Orange, the MIA debate, and the recent shocking memoirs of Defense Secretary McNamara. Chronologies, maps, charts, and battle photos clarify the most mystifying aspects of this 'first modern' war that introduced the rock-and-roll generation to computerized planning, fragging, and the Hanoi Hilton.
