Publisher's Summary

Following World War II, the United States and Soviet Russia vied for dominance around the world in an intense contest called the Cold War. Both Korea and Vietnam felt the full brunt of this conflict, and each was divided into two ideologically opposed sectors; to the north, the Communists dominated, while to the south, the United States prevailed. In both countries, America would face her worst nightmare: a land war in Asia.
It began in Korea but continued in Vietnam, where more than 58 thousand Americans would die. During the course of the Vietnam War, one American president was assassinated, another declined to seek reelection, and a third was discredited. Just as the fabric of society in Vietnam was torn to shreds by the continued political upheaval, so too was our own world powerfully reshaped.
The United States at War series is a collection of presentations that review the political, economic, and social tensions that have erupted in military conflict and examine how the conflict resolved, or failed to resolve, those tensions.
