RECKONING: Vietnam and America's Cold War Experience, 1945-1991, Neal F. Thompson.

Mr. Thompson will present a dissenting analysis of the war in Vietnam, namely, that it was: 1) not meaningfully different from American involvement in Korea, which continues to this very day; and 2) winnable within a reasonable definition of victory had American decision making been based on military reality rather than “the permanent campaign”: “Don’t look past the next election or you might not get past the next election.”

The book will be available for purchase.

A cash bar will be available along with a small selection of food. Coffee is complimentary.

This event is part of the First Division Museum’s popular series, A Date with History. The monthly programs feature an evening of lively discussion with authors, panelists, historians and special speakers.
