Description

In Advice and Support: The Final Years, 1965-1973, Jeffrey J. Clarke describes the U.S. Army advisory effort to the South Vietnamese armed forces during the period when the U.S. commitment in Southeast Asia was at its peak. The account encompasses a broad spectrum of activities at several levels, from the physically demanding work of the battalion advisers on the ground to the more sophisticated undertakings of senior military officers at the highest echelons of the American military assistance command in Saigon. Among critical subjects treated are U.S. command relationships with the South Vietnamese army, politico-military efforts to help reform both the South Vietnamese military and government, and the implementation of the Vietnamization policy inaugurated in 1969. The result tells us much about the U.S. Army's role as an agent of national policy in a critical but often neglected arena, and constitutes a major contribution to our understanding of not only events that occurred in Vietnam, but also the decisions and actions that produced them.

Audience

This book is useful not only as a study of military assistance, but as a view of the Army as an agent of national policy. This volume would be a valuable resource for students regarding the overall study of the conflict in Vietnam.
