Title: 1966 - Escalation in Vietnam War


About: Hundreds of thousands more American troops arrive in Vietnam, although it becomes clear that US strategy is not suited to deal with a determined and resourceful enemy, quarrelsome allies and an Asian society whose complexity they could barely understand. Despite US military superiority, it was the North Vietnamese were able to control the tempo - fighting aggressively where they thought they could win and disappearing into the jungles when they decided they could not.
