A Contagion of War
Boston Publishing Company, 1983 - History - 192 pages
This volume of The Vietnam Experience is composed as a companion piece to another volume, America Takes Over.

This book presents only a sampling fo teh countless battles, pacification efforts, adn other activities from teh arrival of teh first U.S. fighting forces in the spring of 1965 until the end of 1967. Many of these are first-hand accounts.
