Gregory Daddis, a retired U.S. Army colonel and history professor, talked about his book, Withdrawal: Reassessing America’s Final Years in Vietnam. Countering recent scholarship that asserts America could have won the war in 1970, Professor Daddis argued that U.S. military efforts in South Vietnam could not have prevailed for many reasons, including the strained relationship between commanding General Creighton Abrams and President Richard Nixon. The New York Military Affairs Symposium hosted this event. close
