Library Acquires Vietnam War and American Foreign Policy, 1960-1975 Database

  • May 29, 2014

The Library just acquired the Vietnam War and American Foreign Policy, 1960-1975 database.

This database provides primary source documents covering U.S. involvement in the region from the early days of the Kennedy administration, through the escalation of the war during the Johnson administration, to the final resolution of the war at the Paris Peace Talks and the evacuation of U.S. troops in 1973. Along the way, documents in this module trace the actions and decisions at the highest levels of the U.S. foreign policy apparatus, as well as events on the ground in Vietnam, from the perspective of State Department officials, Associated Press reporters, and members of the U.S. Armed forces, including the Marines and the Military Assistance Command Vietnam. The collections also highlight all of the most important foreign policy issues facing the U.S. between 1960 and 1975.
