Vietnam War Era Forum
I am just wondering if this list is still working.
I am wondering if there are any comments on the latest McNamara book
where he discusses the war with Giap.
Is this out in print yet?
I saw a short piece in the Boston Globe last week.
McNamara says the war was a tragedy. Giap says it was planned by the USA
and a heroic resistance by the Vietnamese. McNamara seems to want to
claim we blundered our way in. Did Dulles blunder his way in with Ike?
