The Vietnam War killed over 58,000 Americans and approximately 2 million Vietnamese and left deep scars on the American national conscience. This anthology presents primary documents tracing the development of American intervention in Southeast Asia from Ho Chi Minh's 1945 declaration of Vietnamese independence to the fall of Saigon. Included is material documenting the impact of the 1954 Geneva Convention, the American military buildup that followed the 1964 Gulf of Tokin incident, the antiwar movement at home, and the Vietnamization of the war and the quest for peace with honor.
