Honoring the Civil War Dead

Commemoration and the Problem of Reconciliation

Neff's refreshing perspective challenges numerous myths that have become entrenched in American war memory. This is an exciting narrative and a welcome contribution to American Civil War history and to the literature on memory and memorialization. Race figures as well into Neff's questions and analysis, and he recognizes, in noteworthy ways, how much race was a factor in both actual Civil War deaths and in the postwar rhetoric of commemoration.

Losing Binh Dinh

The Failure of Pacification and Vietnamization, 1969 - 1971

Boylan's careful and well-documented analysis of US and South Vietnamese counterinsurgency efforts in Binh Dinh province is a powerful and convincing refutation of those Revisionists who have counter-factually asserted that the US had won the war by 1970—only to have it lost because of the failure of Congress to support Saigon after the 1973 Paris agreement.
