In the 1960s, as part of an effort to stop the spread of Communism, the United States entered into a conflict in the country of Vietnam. Though it was meant to be a fairly small operation, it soon turned into a long and costly war. Readers will learn about the motivations of U.S. and Vietnamese leaders, find out why so many people opposed the war, and much more as they explore the most important moments of this tumultuous time period.
