BeschreibungThe Army And Vietnam examines the folly of the U.S. attempt to transplant to Indochina the operational methods of conventional warfare that had been successful in the European battle theaters of World War II. With chilling persuasiveness, Krepinevich details the ways in which the U.S. was unprepared to fight a war of counterinsurgency in Vietnam--and why it is likely to remain unprepared to fight any similar war in the near future.
PortraitAndrew F. Krepinevich, Jr. is a defense policy analyst who currently serves as President of the Center for Strategic and Budgetary Assessments.
