Our course asked a question of both Vietnam and the United States: Who owns this war?
In two paragraphs, analyze and then explain your analysis of how the
United States took ownership of the Vietnam War under President Johnson.
Be sure to speak to which factors were so important in the
Americanization process, with some specific examples of what worked and
what did not work.
Then, in a third paragraph, evaluate how the personality and
intentions of President Johnson impacted the direction and pace of the
escalation of conflict in Vietnam.
