A Tale of Two Quagmires is a meticulously-researched examination of how the American public was misled into ruinous military adventures in Vietnam and Iraq and of the 'crucial lessons' that must be acknowledged in order to avoid such debacles in the future. Once a young, battle-hardened, Marine determined to survive his time in a war of dubious necessity now a highly-regarded scholar of international affairs, Professor Ken Campbell offers a reasoned alternative to this cycle of deception and quagmire. In doing so he does not entirely reject the necessity of wars: only those without legitimate purpose and clear-cut strategy. The wisdom contained in A Tale of Two Quagmires has the potential to put the United States on a road to recapturing 'the moral high ground in international relations' and, in the process, spare humanity the horrific consequences of such senseless and protracted conflicts -- a gift beyond value to future generations.Was this review helpful?
