An account of the American-Vietnamese War compiled through inquiry by Preston of Clarksville. Written so that these men may always find glory in the hearts of men. Americans say that they intervened because they wanted to prevent “human rights abuses”, but now, among most learned men, it is commonly agreed upon that they feared the “domino theory” of expanding communist empires. America feared Russia and its power and therefore tried to isolate any countries that might align themselves with, thus strengthening, Russia. After World War II, the Americans became more involved in international political affairs. Americans began to realize that they must strive against Russia to achieve a defense posture capable of withstanding hostile action from within or without from the Soviets.
