New York. 1991. Harper Collins. 1st American Edition. Very Good In Dustjacket. 36. 386 pages. hardcover. Jacket design by Suzanne Noli. Jacket photograph by Marc Riboud. 0060165537. keywords:. inventory # 15143. FROM THE PUBLISHER - World War II ended twice: once on VE-day, May 8, 1945, with the celebration of Allied victory over Germany, and once again on VJ-day, August 14, 1945, with the celebration of victory over Japan. There was no W-day, not only because there was no victory to celebrate, but also because, in some sense, the Vietnam-American War did not end in 1973, with the withdrawal of the last uniformed American troops, or in 1975, with the airlifting to safety of some of the last Vietnamese supporters of the American effort. The Vietnam Wars 1945—1990 is a history of the war the United States fought in Indochina, beginning with the aid the Americans gave to the French to recover control of their former colony, and it is a history of the war of resistance the Vietnamese fought which was by turns, and sometimes simultaneously, a struggle against foreign aggression and for a socialist revolution. For the Vietnamese, the American war-was the latest—and the most difficult—in a struggle for independence they counted as millennial. For the United States, the Vietnam War was the latest— and certainly the most difficult—in a shorter struggle to reorganize the world after World War II. The two wars were not equivalent: Vietnam fought inside the parameters of its own history as well as on its own land; the United States denied that it was fighting a war at all, and the men and women who were nevertheless sent more than ten thousand miles to war there could find no acceptable legacy to draw upon. ‘This story The Vietnam Wars, this terrible history is told with such clarity and passion, detail, intelligence it’s hard to stop reading. The tension in the writing keeps your sadness in some kind of check as you read about opportunities for peace lost again and again, and think of today’s newspapers and how we are., with some differences, modification, and more firepower, once again half the world away confusing credibility with honor.’ — Grace Paley. ‘Marilyn Young’s study The Vietnam Wars combines sound scholarship, compassionate understanding, lucidity of presentation, and penetrating insight into the interplay of forces that created this immense human tragedy. It is an achievement of unusual value.’ - Noam Chomsky, MIT. ‘This book is a wise, heartfelt and highly readable account of the war abroad and the war at home, and a book about memory and history. Professor Young masterfully recuperates the Vietnam debate as it realty W35: a debate between liberal internationalists who deepened American involvement in Vietnam, and a diverse collection of anti-interventionists who, as their strength and insight grew won the debate but for many years appeared to have lost the verdict.’ - Bruce Cumings, University of Chicago.
