About the Author

John Marciano, Professor Emeritus at SUNY Cortland, has been an antiwar and social justice activist, author, scholar, teacher, and trade unionist. He is the author (with William L. Griffen) of Lessons of the Vietnam War (1984); and Civic Illiteracy and Education: The Battle for the Hearts and Minds of American Youth (1997).


"For many years, I've been using John Marciano and William Griffen's venerable 1979 Teaching the Vietnam War in my high school course called The U.S. & Vietnam. Now Marciano has written a newer history of the war that provides analysis and perspective on how the war ought to be remembered - and how it is being misremembered and misused. I am eager to add it to my curriculum!" -W. D. Ehrhart Ph.D., Editor, Carrying the Darkness: the Poetry of the Vietnam War, author, Vietnam-Perkasie: A Combat Marine Memoir// "Marciano provides a deft overview of the American War in Vietnam with all its deceits and horrors while demonstrating how the true history has been sanitized and distorted in class-room history texts, thus depriving younger generations a proper historical and political consciousness, making them unable often to see through the flood of propaganda used to sell more recent military interventions." -Jeremy Kuzmarov, J.P. Walker assistant professor of history, University of Tulsa and author of The Myth of the Addicted Army: Vietnam and the Modern War on Drugs
