Re: H-Diplo Article Review 565 on “‘Hiding behind the Humanitarian Label’: Refugees, Repatriates, and the Rebuilding of America’s Benevolent Image after the Vietnam War.” [6 November 2015]

I realize I am very late in offering a comment on Professor Stur's article so I will be brief.
The basis for the "blood bath" argument was the massacre of approximately two thousand
South Vietnamese civilians carried out by the N.L.F during their occupation of Hue during
The Tet Offensive from February to March, 1968 .
On a personal note, I served in the U.S.Army (97th Field Artillery Battalion) and was called up to Saigon during the Offensive)
I did not believe there would be a "blood bath" when the war ended in April, 1975

[CORR] H-Diplo Roundtable XVII, 13 on Nation Builder: John Quincy Adams and the Grand Strategy of the Republic [8 February 2016]

Corrections to the Introduction for this Roundtable:

- John Quincy Adams served as Secretary of State under James Monroe and not James Madison, and he served as as President from
1825-1829, and not 1820-1824.
