Vietnam

A small country in Southeast Asia where conflict between old and new had been going on for years was to engulf the United States in a war that eventually expanded beyond expectations to become one of the longest and most bitter engagements in American History. Despite an overwhelming advantage in material, using instruments of war such as the helicopter in ways never before seen in combat, the United States and its allies found themselves battling a determined foe in the jungles and rice paddies of Vietnam. Regardless of the political and moral outcome of the war, the individual Army and Marine soldier who fought there saw events in a very definitive manner, of war as it had always been fought, man against man in small firefights that would otherwise be lost to history. These small battles together form the story of war unique to history and to America's experience.
