Why We Were in Vietnam

By Norman Podhoretz
Simon and Schuster, 1982
256 pp. $14.50

The author argues vigorously that American intentions in Vietnam were to protect a struggling people from communist tyranny. He criticizes President Johnson and other leaders for failing to make the moral case for involvement and he condemns those who said the war was immoral. The book is really intended as a lesson for the 1980s.
