Decades later, the Vietnam war’s effects are still being felt by civilians and veterans alike. In American Reckoning, historian Christian Appy (Patriots) argues that, perhaps the most important legacy left by Vietnam is how the war “shattered the central tenet of American national identity.” As the Vietnam war showed, Americans are vulnerable to defeat and, according to Appy this haunting lesson has influenced everything from popular culture to foreign policy in the Middle East. He’ll examine this and other effects of the war, and offer advice on how to move forward from its shadow.
