Willard J. Webb (a.); David A. Armstrong (foreword); Walter S. Poole (preface). Focuses on the activities of the Joint Chiefs of Staff (JCS) that were concerned with the conflicts in Indochina & later Vietnam. The Text appears largely as it was written while the war was still in progress; it has been reviewed for declassification & cleared for release. In the preface, Poole discusses the few revisions that were made & the rationale for leaving the text substantially unaltered. For 1969-1970, it is important to convey the attitudes of senior policymakers without benefit of hindsight. The Nixon administration did not yet look upon South Vietnam as a lost cause. While the JCS had reservations & made them known, the overall tone of their appraisals of the war was one of guarded optimism. A full test of Vietnamization was yet to come. Illus.
