The Vietnam War chronicles the first war to be televised. The comprehensive description of battles, social and political issues, and revelations are all the more powerful because of first-hand accounts, telling photographs, and other primary sources. Students will learn the causes, outcomes, and repercussions of this polemic conflict through a historical lens and from the perspectives of soldiers, civilians, and others caught up in the Vietnam War.
