Westmoreland's War

Reassessing American Strategy in Vietnam

Gregory A. Daddis

  • An original and major reinterpretation of American strategy during the Vietnam War which totally reconsiders the generalship of William Westmoreland and offers a more balanced picture of the US Army in Vietnam
  • The book's thesis that US strategy was more than just 'attrition' confronts decades' worth of historical narratives which argue we lost in Vietnam because of bad leadership and an incorrect strategy
