Robert R. Owens: America Won the Vietnam War!
This examination of the Vietnam War is not a detailed account of the battlefield struggle. Instead, it looks at the goals and objectives as stated in the rhetoric of America's leadership. The criteria used for judgement are the public records of the achievements or failures of those goals and objectives. This work is not only necessary for historical accuracy, but it is also imperative in the cause of justice for the brave men and women who fought and won the war. To you, the unappreciated veterans of Vietnam, I say: "You may not have received a parade when you came home. The media may continue to malign your name. However, beginning here, it is my hope that you will see the record of your courageous achievements corrected and the history of your selfless service acknowledged. In this book I reveal the best-kept secret of the twentieth century: 'America Won the Vietnam War!' or 'How the Left Snatched Defeat from the Jaws of Victory.'"
