AMERICA'S WAR IN VIETNAM
Credit points: 15
The Vietnam War is one of the three most significant wars of the twentieth century. It was the longest war that the United States has ever fought and also the only war in which it has ever been forced to concede defeat. This subject explores the events that embroiled the United States and its allies in Vietnam's conflict and examines how the US has come to terms with its meaning. A significant part of the subject deals with the cultural responses to the war both at the time and in its continuing legacy.
