Description

U.S. Navy and the Vietnam War. This book focuses on events in the region between 1945 and 1965 and the growing U.S. concern over Communist inroads into the region. From the Chinese civil war to the French-Indochina war and the rise of Ho Chi Minh, this book describes U.S. response to the Communist movements in Asia and how the U.S. Navys role evolved from an advisory one to actual combat after the Tonkin Gulf attack of August 1964.
