The Vietnam Debate: A Fresh Look at the Arguments

This 1990 volume includes papers delivered at a major national conference cosponsored by Center for National Security Law and the ABA Standing Committee on Law and National Security. The purpose of the conference was to reconsider the most significant arguments of the Vietnam debates of the late 1960s and early 1970s in the light of the latest evidence on the topic. Contributors include academic specialists, retired military officers, prominent journalists, and even a couple of former student radical leaders. The volume refutes such common "myths" as the widely-held view that the National Liberation Front for South Vietnam was independent of North Vietnam, and that North Vietnam and the Viet Cong "won" the 1968 Tet Offensive in a military sense.
