Stemming the Tide: May 1965 to October 1966: Combat Operations, U.S. Army in Vietnam
John M. Carland. When a Communist-led insurgency supported by N. Vietnam threatened to overthrow the S. Vietnamese government in early 1965, the U.S. committed ground troops to hold the line. The decision to intervene represented an admission that 10 years of U.S. advice & support policy had failed. This book focuses on the first 18 months of combat in Vietnam. It describes how the U.S. Army entered the war & fought its first battles north of Saigon & in the Central Highlands. The results of these engagements convinced Gen. Westmoreland that he had stemmed the tide of the Communist offensive. In 1966 he altered tactics, taking the fight to the Viet Cong & N. Vietnamese in a series of high-tempo spoiling attacks throughout the country. Maps & photos.
