HST 3169 History of the Vietnam War (3 credits)

Despite its retreat into the chronological past, the Vietnam War remains at the forefront of American life today. The news media often connects it to current policy, and it continues to stir the memories of people from that generation. This course examines a variety of themes that encompass the war from its initial French phase through the end of American involvement. Topics include policy decisions, the role of soldiers on the battlefield, the impact of the anti-war movement, and the war's legacy in American culture. (Might not be offered every year)
