The Vietnam War came to an end in 1975. But another battle is brewing — as Obama has launched a decade of commemoration — and that is over how the war is to be remembered.  Was it a noble cause that was poorly executed?  Or was the war itself immoral?  And when we look at the toll of the war, who should be included and who forgotten?  Historian John Marciano argues that how the American war in Vietnam is remembered has everything to do with the present and the shaping of public support for American war-making.

One Response to Sasha Lilley’s “Against the Grain” on KFPA Berkeley with John Marciano

    THE AMERICAN WAR IN VIETNAM , by John Marciano , is a concise ,160 page ; comprehensive , from 1945’s anti-war protest of American sailors delivering French troops to Indochina to the current attempt to justify the war. It is an expose’ and refutation of all the lies and propaganda the ruling class has used during ” the Cold War ” (1947-1991 ) to rationalize the aggression against the Peoples of Indochina . The book should be on the reading list of all American History courses at the college level , and available in every high school library as a reference . I would also recommend SCORCHED EARTH ,by Fred Wilcox on the subject of agent orange/dioxin use in Vietnam. Al Donohue , member Vietnam Veterans Against the War
