HY 320 - The Vietnam War


Designed to trace America’s post-WWII involvement in the war in Indochina, from support of French efforts to reestablish their colony after Japanese occupation, to the fall of Saigon to the Communists in 1975. Origins of French colonialism, as well as Vietnamese nationalism and communism will be explored. Special emphasis will be given to the evolution of American involvement, military strategies, and national strategies and policies during the course of the war that cost more than 58,000 American lives, countless Vietnamese lives and $167 billion of our national treasure.
