Not a Gentleman's War: An Inside View of Junior Officers in the Vietnam War

Research output: Book/ReportBookpeer-review

Abstract

Wars are not fought by politicians and generals, they are fought by soldiers. Milam debunks the theory that junior officers in Vietnam were no-talen, poorly trained and unmotivated soldiers. Drawing on oral histories, after-action reports, diaries, letters, and other archival sources, he deemonstrates that most of the lieutenants who served in combat performed their duties well and effectively, serving with great skill, dedication and commitment to the men they led.
