This volume completes the author's study of the American role in Vietnam since 1940. His assumptions, as in his first book (Prelude to Disaster: The American Role in Vietnam, 1940-1963, reviewed April 1976), are vintage cold war; his sources almost exclusively American and heavily official; his criticisms muted. He considers the lesson of Vietnam obvious and ominous . . . "who will be the last domino?"
