The Korean War and the Vietnam War
People, Politics, and PowerBook - 2010
Spanning from the 1950s to the 1970s, the United States was involved in two wars that were fought far from homeone in aid of South Korea against the neighboring Communist North Korea, and a second waged through the jungles of Vietnam, Cambodia, and Laos. Both of these engagements were a reaction to what American leaders feared as being Communist takeovers, and both created storms of political controversy and upheaval that still echo today. This book explores both wars in detail to help readers understand why the conflicts occurred and what their lasting effects have been.
