KOREA and VIETNAM: THE LINK
Please note, this event has expired.
A course that will examine how these two wars became inextricably linked during the Cold War.
OLLI of Greater Birmingham presents Korea and Vietnam: The Link with instructor James Day, Professor of History, University of Montevallo. As U.S. involvement in the Korean War ended, France was losing its grip on Southeast Asia. Despite President Eisenhower’s decision to cut American financial aid to French Indochina, subsequent U.S. presidents became increasingly involved in Vietnam. Consequently, these two wars became inextricably linked as “hot conflicts” during the Cold War. ThisView more
