No war in history has seen American participation last as long as in Vietnam. Through newspaper articles printed at the exact time, the Washington Post Vietnam War newspaper book captures the mood and perception of the American nation during its involvement in the Vietnam War, which lasted from 1955 to 1975. Starting with the Gulf of Tonkin incident in 1964, where the USS Maddox was attacked by North Vietnamese torpedoes and machine gun fire, the book takes you through Operations Flaming Dart, Rolling Thunder and Arc Light, before eventually ending with the fall of Saigon. The clippings presented cover the action over land, sky and sea, and focus on the actions of Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon, giving an extensive, thorough view of the Vietnam War as it happened.
Personalize your Vietnam War book with a name and special message on the title page. The name will also be embossed onto the cover to make this the perfect present for any budding historian.
