Some lessons from failure in Vietnam by Daniel Ellsberg ( Book )
4 editions published in 1969 in English and held by 45 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Remarks at a June 1968 conference on lessons and mis-lessons from Vietnam. Our 1965 escalation followed not from a theory of limited war but from the American way of war, reliant on bombing and shelling. The lesson is, a nation that pleads for U.S. military support in a conflict is inviting great destruction of its territory and society. Public revulsion to the Vietnam war is not a result of cyclical change in American attitudes toward war in general, but rather is a response to this war: to the way we entered it, the way we are conducting it, and our evident lack of progress or prospect of success. The American bureaucracy must bear substantial responsibility for our failure in Vietnam. Initially there was great ignorance about the society and problems of Vietnam, which the bureaucracy has not corrected. Moreover, we persist in denying and disguising our failures there. This suggests the folly of U.S. intervention in areas and problems of which we know little. It is essential to study the governmental and military learning process to discern its limits and ways to speed it up
The day Lộc Tiên was pacified by Daniel Ellsberg ( Book )
5 editions published in 1968 in English and held by 40 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
A description of conditions at one of three neighboring hamlets on the day of the formal ceremony in which the three were to be declared "pacified" and "secure" from Viet Cong attack. The situation that has prevailed throughout Vietnam was apparent at Loc Tien. Even in areas of relative security, the Revolutionary Development Cadre teams have had little success in inducing people to make a commitment to the GVN or to resist the Viet Cong. In contested areas, the task is hopeless in that the villagers do not have even minimally adequate security against Viet Cong attack

Brian Willson became a radical, nonviolent peace protester and pacifist, and this memoir details the drastic governmental and social change he has spent his life fighting for. Chronicling his personal struggle with a government he believes to be unjust, Willson sheds light on the various incarnations of his protests of the U.S. government, including the refusal to pay taxes, public fasting, and, most famously, public obstruction. On September 1, 1987, Willson was run over by a U.S. government munitions train during a nonviolent blocking action in which he e
