Pacification : the American struggle for Vietnamʼs hearts and minds by Richard A Hunt( Book )

15 editions published between 1995 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 668 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Hunt concentrates on the American role, setting pacification in the larger political context of nation building. He describes the search for the best combination of military and political action, incorporating analysis of the controversial Phoenix program, and illuminates the difficulties the Americans encountered with their sometimes reluctant ally. The author explains how hard it was to get the U.S. Army involved in pacification and shows the struggle to yoke divergent organizations (military, civilian, and intelligence agencies) to serve one common goal. The greatest challenge of all was to persuade a surrogate - the Saigon government - to carry out programs and to make reforms conceived of by American officials. The book concludes with a careful assessment of pacification's successes and failures
Melvin Laird and the foundation of the post-Vietnam military, 1969-1973 by Richard A Hunt( Book )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 559 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"[E]xamines the former Congressman Melvin Laird's efforts to reconstitute the Department of Defense during the last years of the Vietnam war ... Laird acted to mitigate the adverse effects of the Vietnam War on the department and to prepare the nation's armed forces for the future. Foremost was the transition from a conscripted military to an all-volunteer force, a fundamental policy shift that ended an unpopular and inequitable draft system."--Jacket
