  • How can being an underdeveloped country make you less of an attractive bombing target?

Description:

A listing of full text DoD and Navy publications relating to the Vietnam War. Notable publications include:

  • Questions and Answers – Viet-Nam: The Struggle for Freedom (Sort of an official catechism on why we were there and what we were doing.)
  • Bombing As a Policy Tool In Vietnam: Effectiveness – 1972 Congressional report
