  • Blood in the Hills

    A soldier's eye view of Vietnam's fiercest close-quarters battle upon its 50th anniversary Khe Sanh's Hill Fights of 1967?as experienced by co-author Bobby Maras and told in this hour-by-hour, day-by-day account?were carnage on the ground, much of it hand-to-hand fighting in the dark. Thanks to the brave Marines of the 9th and 3rd, Khe Sanh survived the first concentrated attack by the North Vietnamese to invade the South. After the Hill Fights, American forces pulled back and held out against constant enemy shelling and frequent attacks until the siege was broken. Combining Maras' personal experiences with the war's bigger picture, Blood in the Hills honors the heroic actions of our soldiers and shows how Khe Sanh was microcosm of the entire Vietnam War.

  • Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War
    Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War (English, Hardback) David F. Schmitz

    In Richard Nixon and the Vietnam War, David F. Shmitz provides students of US history and the Vietnam era with an up-to-date analysis of Nixon's Vietnam policy in a brief and accessible book that addresses the main controversies of the Nixon years. Richard Nixon came into office seeking a decisive victory in Vietnam, and expanded the war in hopes of upholding a policy of "containment," protecting America's credibility, and defying the growing antiwar movement. However, by 1971 the president was forced to significantly de-escalate the American presence and seek a negotiated end to the war. Aided by recently declassified documents, Schmitz provides a comprehensive analysis of Nixon's Vietnam policy during the first years of his administration, clearly demonstrating that Nixon pursued military victory and providing a new periodization for our understanding of the Vietnam War.
