From 1945 to 1975, during the Cold War, a “hot war” raged in Southeast Asia, first between the Communist Viet Minh and France, and then between Communist North Vietnam and non-Communist South Vietnam. U.S. military historian and Vietnam veteran John Bradley sheds light on the campaigns, strategy and legacies of these wars. The course considers the varied approaches of Presidents Kennedy, Johnson and Nixon and the impact of their decisions and policies. We also review the French war, the interwar years and the U.S. war, exploring the political and military difficulties faced when fighting a limited war, key facets of generalship, the bravery and sacrifice of the varied combatants and the results and consequences of the two Vietnam Wars.
