A comprehensive narrative history of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, from 1942 to 1975. Unlike most general histories of U.S. involvement in Vietnam–which are either conventional, diplomatic or military histories–Vietnam: An American Ordeal synthesizes the perspectives to explore both dimensions of the struggle in greater depth, elucidating more of the complexities of the U.S.-Vietnam entanglement.

This text provides a comprehensive narrative history of the U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia -- from the mid-1940s to the mid-1970s. It takes a balanced, unbiased look at all aspects of the war, and discusses why Americans tried so hard so long to stop the spread of Communism into Indochina, and why they failed.
