    American intervention in Vietnam, the role of Congress, the Executive and the media, the response of the American public, particularly students, to the escalation of the war, and the war’s legacy upon American politics, culture and foreign policy. Britain already had a ‘flag’ in Vietnam but one too small for Washington’s liking. The support of a close ally, leading social democracy and key member of Nato and the UN Security Council was vital. But when Johnson suggested that a token British force in South Vietnam would have a significant effect, Wilson refused on three grounds.

      Written by the reporter and producer Bill Hayton, who was a BBC correspondent in Vietnam during , this book is an intensive crash course in the history, politics and economics of the country. Recommended as one of the best books on modern Vietnam by experts of the Vietnam Studies Group, Hayton looks beyond the Vietnam that is presented to. As Britain lost more than 2, men in Vietnam, it is hardly surprising that the scars remain painfully raw. At Norman Foster's unconventional memorial on Pall Mall, it is not unusual to see families with tears in their eyes, while defenders of the war continue to pump out hugely popular books.
