The Vietnam War
Americans aren't good at history. It's an unfortunate fact. Millions of Americans, old and young, have virtually no factual knowledge of the Vietnam War - the pivotal event of American history in the latter half of the 20th century. For ten years it swept across America like a destructive hurricane. Its impacts were felt for decades afterward in every part of society and government; especially by the veterans of the war. I've been appalled at the lack of knowledge of that war. The young Americans who fought in or were otherwise affected by the war deserve better.
This ignorance of history can all end in January 2021 when one of the most definitive books of the war will be published. Covering 75-years, from the beginning of the war, the war itself from a grunt's perspective, to the realities and conditions that have existed for decades for war fighters upon the war's end. Stay tuned.
