The Indochina and Vietnam Wars followed one another over a thirty-five year span from 1940 to 1975. These two closely related conflicts are usually treated separately, mostly in isolation from one another. This book presents those wars as a single historical event for the student and the informed general reader. This unique, compact history explicates the rationales for and the implementation of successive policies: Eisenhower's involvement after France leaves Indochina for good in 1954; Kennedy's overt and covert actions culminating in Diem's overthrow in 1963; Johnson's 'Domino Theory' big war commitment that would scar a generation; Nixon's formula of Vietnamization and offensive incursions into Cambodia, strategic bombing offensives into North Vietnam and continued Paris Peace Talks between Henry Kissinger and Le Duc Tho.
