The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War
Paperback, 256 pages
Think the United States lost the Vietnam War?
To listen to today’s leftist historians and liberal media, the Vietnam War was a tragic and dismal failure for the U.S. Yet, as author and Vietnam veteran Phillip Jennings shows in The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War, Vietnam was not a hopeless, highly-protested, useless fight we lost. Our soldiers were not intent on committing heinous acts against the poor and helpless women and children.
American soldiers were actually well-liked—as well as very well-educated. And the whole idea that we lost the Vietnam War? It’s completely false. By any traditional definition of war, we won.
In this controversial new “P.I.G.”, Jennings exposes the truth about Nixon’s Cambodia bombings, the Pentagon Papers, Kennedy’s waffling team of “whiz kids”, the Kent State Massacre, the real effect of the TET offensive, and more including:
* Polls taken throughout the war revealed an overwhelming majority of Americans opposed the anti-war Left
* Returning Vietnam veterans are better off–financially, educationally, and psychologically–than their peers who didn’t serve
* Four United States presidents–two Democrats and two Republicans–supported and advocated the war in Vietnam. Only Nixon kept his promise to end the war
* Popular books on Vietnam virtually ignore the most important and successful years of the war (when we had beaten the North Vietnamese on the battlefield and pulled out 100 percent of our combat troops)
Without the sacrifices made and courage displayed by our military in Vietnam, the world would be a very different place today. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War at last reveals the truth about the battles, players, and policies of one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history.
Phillip E. Jennings served in Vietnam with the United States Marine Corps, flying helicopters, and in Laos as a pilot for Air America. He is the author of the critically acclaimed comic novels Nam-A-Rama and Goodbye Mexico, and won the Pirate’s Alley Faulkner Society first prize for fiction with his short story, “Train Wreck in a Small Town.” A successful entrepreneur, he is currently CEO of Molecular Resonance Corporation, which is developing technology to detect and disarm Improvised Explosive Devices. He lives with his family near Seattle, Washington.
