Cambodian Campaign: The 1970 Offensive and America's Vietnam War 3 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 1 reviews.
Shrike58 on LibraryThing 5 months ago
The author is at his best when writing about the conduct of the campaign at the divisional and brigade levels of command, and has a great deal of material on the logistical side of of the ledger. As for buying his argument that this spoiling campaign was necessary to allow the final disengagement of American ground forces from Vietnam, well, it's an argument. Maybe even a reasonable counterfactual. I still tend to buy the mainstream assessment that whatever the virtues of going into Cambodia it wasn't worth the souring of public opinion on Nixon's conduct of the war. The negative reviews over at Amazon also tend to give me a bit of pause.
