Re: #AirWarVietnam – Contested Skies: A Brief Guide to the Historiography of the Air War in Vietnam

ED, In Andrew & Gordievsky's book on KGB, and In Stanislav Lunev book on GRU , they both claim that over 1 billion dollars was spent supporting the anti-war movement worldwide, and that per their accounts more was spent on supporting the anti-war movement than on directly supporting the communists in Vietnam . So , while the Soviets certainly spent more than a billion but I think you are totally correct in saying the amounts spent by USA were far more costly .

Re: Lend Lease

Lewis:

As for your comment: "..... fear that many of those who read military history reflect your earlier interests rather than your more sophisticated interests concerning war making as opposed to "drum and trumpet" history. There are not many popular histories of logistics and most campaign narratives do not consider logistics in a meaningful way. Industrial and agricultural resource mobilization and allocation of resources do not strike the fancy of the average reader."
