As a result, despite fears of a greater economic…

In Vietnam, the Pentagon Papers Are History Written by the Defeated

This article is part of a special report on the 50th anniversary of the Pentagon Papers. The Pentagon Papers may have been all over the front pages of U.S. newspapers 50 years ago, but they were barely noticed in Hanoi. Communist leaders were too busy fighting their war in the present to look at its history. Besides, the contents of the papers only served to confirm their longstanding notions. By the time “Vietnam Archive: Pentagon Study Traces Three Decades of…

The war became unwinnable because of a series of unfortunate decisions. Losing interest in…
