More than 58,000 American troops and military personnel died in the humid jungles and muddy rivers of Vietnam during the 20-year conflict called the Vietnam War. Why? And how could the world’s most powerful and technologically advanced military be defeated by a small, poverty-stricken country? These questions have haunted the U.S. government, the military, and the American public for nearly a half century. In THE VIETNAM WAR, kids ages 12 to 15 explore the history that gave rise to the Vietnam War, the reasons why the United States became embroiled in the conflict and the causes of its defeat.
