Without honor : defeat in Vietnam and Cambodia by Arnold R Isaacs( Book )

16 editions published between 1983 and 1999 in English and held by 1,970 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A gripping account of one of the century's most harrowing human catastrophes - the fall of South Vietnam - Without Honor captures the tragedy and the irony of the Vietnam War's last days and examines the consequences of the American military and political decisions that had sustained the war effort for a generation only to lead to the worst foreign policy failure in the nation's history. Arnold Isaacs, who spent the final years of the war in Vietnam as a correspondent for the Baltimore Sun, describes his firsthand observations of the collapse of Cambodia and South Vietnam - from the 1973 Paris peace agreement to the American evacuation of Saigon and its aftermath - with heartbreaking detail, from the devastated battlefields and villages to the boats filled with terrified refugees. He also provides a historical record about the strategic decisions made during the war's end game and the intelligence failure that led Americans and their Southeast Asian allies to underestimate the strength and perseverance of the enemy."--Jacket
Vietnam shadows : the war, its ghosts, and its legacy by Arnold R Isaacs( Book )

12 editions published between 1997 and 2000 in English and held by 1,302 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In Vietnam Shadows, former war correspondent Arnold Isaacs turns his reportorial eye to the conflict since Vietnam, covering the skirmishes and firefights of a cultural battle. Isaacs takes on the popular myths and misconceptions about Vietnam. Isaacs talks to the veterans unable to forget the war no one wanted to talk to them about. He explores the class divisions deepened by a conflict in which the privileged avoided service that an earlier generation had embraced as a duty. And he shows how the "Vietnam Syndrome" continues to affect nearly every major U.S. foreign policy decision, from the Persian Gulf to Somalia, Bosnia, and Haiti. Capturing the ironic legacies of a war that abounds in them, Isaacs introduces the "new Americans"--The Vietnamese, Thais, and Cambodians -- who fled Indochina to settle in the U.S., where fashion spreads in the New York Times Magazine feature models photographed in Vietnamese settings wearing "Indo-chic clothes" that sell for four to five years' income for the average Vietnamese. And he recounts the experiences of Americans who have returned to Vietnam, only to find their former enemies turned entrepreneurs -- such as the operators of a popular Saigon bar called Apocalypse Now. --From publisher's description

3 editions published between 1999 and 2006 in English and held by 42 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

During the Vietnam war the image of desperate people clinging to an evacuation helicopter atop the U.S. embassy, only hours before North Vietnamese troops arrived is seared into the American consciousness. This program uses the story of South Vietnam's last days as a prism through which the dark side of American foreign involvement can be seen. How did the White House and the Pentagon so completely misjudge America's ability to thwart a people's revolution in Southeast Asia?
