Richard Nixon came into office seeking a decisive victory in Vietnam, and expanded the war in hopes of upholding a policy of "containment," protecting America's credibility, and defying the growing antiwar movement. However, by 1971 the president was forced to significantly de-escalate the American presence and seek a negotiated end to the war. Aided by recently declassified documents, David F. Schmitz, provides a comprehensive analysis of Nixon's Vietnam policy during the first years of his administration, clearly demonstrating that Nixon pursued military victory and providing a new periodization for our understanding of the Vietnam War.
