Summons of the Trumpet: U.S.-Vietnam in Perspective
Summons of the Trumpet: U.S.-Vietnam in Perspective
By Dave Richard Palmer
Presidio Press, 1978, 277 pp

A very fine, readable book that frankly addresses the tortured history of America's involvement in Vietnam. The aspects discussed include national policy, political restrictions and domestic dissent, but the author is really at his best when relating the intent and the lessons of the military campaigns and battles.
