On the twelfth podcast of American History Too! we wade through the quagmire of the Vietnam
War. In discussing arguably the first
war that the United States ever lost, we consider the divisions the war created
at home and how Vietnam Veterans were treated by the general public. We also chat extensively about the Kent State Shootings - ‘the most popular murders ever committed in the United States’ - and the backlash to the antiwar movement.
Find out why the US was in Vietnam, why Great Britain never
joined the coalition fighting in Vietnam, and Malcolm explains why the massive
hit movie Aliens is in fact a film
about the war in Southeast Asia!
All this and much, much more on this week’s bumper length American History Too!
