Free download Vietnam The Last War the US Lost Joe Allen ✓ 4 review Vietnam The Last War the US Lost review ç 104 Ng myths about the Vietnam era persist including the accusations that antiwar activists routinely jeered and spat at returning soldiers or that the war finally ended because Congress cut off its funding Writing in a clear and accessible style Allen reclaims the stories of the courageous GI revolt; its dynamic relationship with the civil rights movement and the peace movement; the development of coffee houses where these groups came to speak out debate and organize; and the struggles waged. Joe Allen s brief summation of the US war in Vietnam is an excellent and compact history of both the US war of aggression as well as the domestic revolution that occurred at home With excellent precision and historical breadth Allen reviews the context of French colonialism in Vietnam followed by the US multiple attempts to reclaim the former colony namely military funding and support followed by an air invasion followed by the full scale deployment of troops Allen traces the web of deceit that flowed from the Kennedy Johnson and Nixon administrations which culminated in the secret bombing of Cambodia Allen demonstrates uite lucidly how the war was stopped through a combination of resistance at home NLF resistance and GI resistance There are excellent descriptions of the Black Power movement as well as the rise of working class militancy in the 1970 s Allen demolishes the myth that opposition to the US war was primarily studentintellectual led and demonstrates that opposition to the war was overwhelmingly led by the working classes Perhaps the only thing that is missing in this account is an analysis of the economic considerations of US policy makers Still an excellent work of history

As the disaster in Ira continued to be compared with Vietnam Allen set out to illuminate the history of that conflict having been obscured by time and distorted by decades of pop culture and political propaganda Even if you think you know all about it this book should be readBy no means exhaustive this is still a cogent clear eyed account that includes the history of colonization in Vietnam and tracks the US involvement since the end of World War II It examines the results of the war on the ground in Vietnam in the halls of US power on campuses in the streets in work places and in the media Recommended The devastation wreaked by the United States on Vietnam should have put to rest once and for all the myth of the United States as a nation committed to upholding freedom and democracy throughout the worldA lesson to be learned from this history also includes the fact that the rhetoric of those in power has never changed The cops still say and do the same things to demonstrators same overblown warnings about violent protestors same brutal tactics same excuses afterwards The politicians say the same things about lights at the ends of tunnels and freedom and so on The press dutifully reports The liberals fear radical action than the evils of war The democrats twist themselves into antiwar candidates even though they support the venture overseas The poor working class and people of color do the dirty work What did change with regards to the so called War on Terror is that after mass protests prior to the 2003 invasion of Ira the antiwar sentiment and action seemed to disappear rather than increase like during the war on Vietnam
