    Research Categories

    Conduct your research based on the following topics. Your chosen articles can be about a specific person, platoon, battle, situation, decision - there’s a lot of freedom here. Because you only need to find four articles, you will not have an article for each category – but you will have articles on four different topics.

    • Entrance into Vietnam

    • The Draft

    • Pulling out of Vietnam

    • A lack of clear goals

    • Underestimation (of the topography, of the advice of experts)

    • An incorrect belief in the Domino Theory
