The War Everyone Lost-And Won

By Timothy J. Lomperis
Louisiana State University Press, 1984

The aim of this book is to dispel the notion that the United States lost all that it sought and the communist side won a complete victory in Vietnam. The author points out that the Vietnamese Communists have not yet attained their goal of political legitimacy; nor did the war prove the efficacy of "wars of liberation" in the Third World. The underlying message is that Americans should not allow themselves to be paralyzed by a totally negative reading of the lessons of Vietnam.
