Did Anything Good Come Out of... the Vietnam War? Summary


Did Anything Good Come Out of... the Vietnam War? by Philip Steele

This book considers the Vietnam (or Second Indochina) War, 1955-1975, which may have killed as many as 3 million troops and civilians. It divided America, it aroused huge opposition around the world and it divided generations. Why was it fought and what were the outcomes? Did it have any unexpected consequences? Did any good at all come out of it?
