Vietnam War: A Historical Overview presented by Dr. Alan Lamm
 
Tuesday, February 11 at 7 p.m. – Moye Library, University of Mount Olive
 

The Vietnam War divided Americans then and now. Those on the right saw it as part of the epic Cold War struggle. They feared that if it fell, the rest of Southeast Asia would fall, too, just like a row of dominoes. Those on the left believed it was an unjust war of imperialism. Which side, if either, is correct? Why were we in Vietnam? And why did the war end the way it did?  

Dr. Lamm, Chair of the History Department at University of Mount Olive, is a former U.S. Army Chaplain (Captain) and Army Historian.
