These essays explore the controversial questions raised by Vietnam—such as whether each president understood what he was getting into, whether (as some now charge) the media and public opinion undermined Americas ability to win the war, whether official statements were intended to mislead the American people, and, most fundamentally, why America was in Vietnam.
