Embers of War
Logevall is John S. Knight professor of international studies at Cornell University.
Cornell University historian Fredrik Logevall talked about the origins of the Vietnam War, which he termed America’s “least popular war.” Beginning with the 1919 Versailles Peace Conference that ended World War I, continuing through a half century of French rule, and on to America’s involvement in Vietnam, he said the war was a story of political, military, and diplomatic maneuvering and miscalculation.
