"....history of the defeat of the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Army at the hands of the American and Allied troops from 1961 through 1973. It ch ronicles, in detail, the virtual annihilation of the Viet Cong by the late 1960s. The book then recounts the first wholesale introduction of North Vietnamese Army troops onto the battlefield in 1964 and America's response - the landing of U . S . g r o u nd forces in early 1965. Battle by battle, from Ia Drang through Khe Sanh through Linebacker Operations, 'Unheralded Victory' presents a convincing and accurate picture of the American victory. Why is it then, that American and al li ed s uc c es se s ha ve not been publicized and, instead, such negative images of allied military involvement dominate the discourse? Much of this can be attributed to the very successful propaganda campaign run by Hanoi, often unwittingly aide d a nd abe tte d by wes te rn observers. (This book) looks at the myths this campaign created and debunks them one by one. It closely analyzes the morale of the troops, the attitudes of the American people about the war, the frequency of drug use, the 'f ragg ing' m urd ers, an d o ther myths which dominate the discourse on the war. In the process, (it) suggests a much more positive view of not just the outcome of the war, but also of American morale, competence, and performance. Finall y, th e bo ok lo oks a t w hy t his p ropa gand a campaign was so successful, and why it - and the myths it created - still dominate the histories and popular memories of the Vietnam War...."
