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

Am beginning to wonder if there is any point to arguing for a particular position since it is unlikely not only will any minds be changed by such but assertion of such leads to further divides such as those already known to be. Example, no more aggressive air war would have brought about victory in Vietnam without the ability of So. Vietnam's military and govt. to exercise authority and rule over So. Vietnam as a viable , independent nation. That observation is more than affirmed by the subsequent collapse of So. Vietnam after Vietnamization had taken place.
