"The Vietnam War was the greatest disaster in the history of American foreign policy. The conflict shook the nation to its foundations, exacerbating already deep cleavages in American society, and left the country baffled and ambivalent about its role in the world. Year of the Hawk is a military and political history of the war in Vietnam during 1965--the pivotal first year of the American conflict, when the United States decided to intervene directly with combat units in a struggle between communist and pro-Western forces in South Vietnam that had raged on and off for twenty years. By December 1965, a powerful communist offensive had been turned back, and the US Army had prevailed in one of the most dramatic battles in American military history, but nonetheless there were many signs and portents that US involvement would soon slide toward the tipping point of tragedy. Vividly interweaving events in the US capital with action in Southeast Asia, historian James A. Warren explores the mindsets and strategies of the adversaries and concludes that, in the end, Washington was not so much outfought in Vietnam as outthought by revolutionaries pursuing a brilliant protracted war strategy. Based on new research, Year of the Hawk offers fresh insight into how a nationalist movement led by communists in a small country defeated the most powerful nation on earth."--Amazon.… (mais)

5983. Year of the Hawk America's Descent into Vietnam, 1965 by James A. Warren (read 4 Mar 2022) Most of this book, which was published in 2021, tells of the Vietnam war during 1965, when American ground troops first began fighting in Vietnam, and spends a lot of timetelling, in not very interesting detail, of the battles which American forces waged in 1965, The more worthwhile part of the book is when it discusses how the American forces, under the command of General Westmoreland, increasingly engaged in ground and air fighting , even though it became apparent, in time, that the war could not be won. The author blames Lbj and he does bear much blame. But there was much dissent. I admit I was not a dove in the first years of the war but in 1968 became more doveish, suporting Bobby Kenedy till he was killed,and with less enthusiasm, Gene McCarthy. Humphrey, as the book shows, favored trying to lessen America's role in Vietnam. But Republicans, mostly, were hawkish re Vietnam till long after it was apparent that it was losing cause. The book does not give credit to the doves, but shows that they were right. It is a fascinating discussion and makes the book worthwhile. ( )
