Constant references to Iraq and Afghanistan as America’s new Vietnam suggest an examination of America’s thirty year military involvement in Southeast Asia, a most controversial episode in U.S. history. Looks at the origins of the Cold War, the Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon presidencies, antiwar activism and other Vietnam era movements, the American soldier’s experiences during and after service, and relevant parallels and differences with our current involvement.
