Great Intro to the Subject
Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Its a class that teaches the facts from all sides of the Vietnam War, and not just opinions of peers, whether aunts, uncles, teachers, vets, former protesters. It gives you the sources to decide what you think. And that is so critical about a war that hung a shadow over America. So I came in wondering what I thought about the Vietnam and Cold War and ow I believe I have a firm opinion on both sides of the stories you engage your time in.
This course really gave me an in depth look at all aspects of the war, the Vietnamese citizen, the American student, US Secretary of State, and the French, Vietnamese and American soldier. It put a face in a person in a faceless war. Also it covered the Cold War which showed the rapid foreshadowing of what was to come and it always made me want to keep learning.

Advice for students:
Always keep up on the readings no matter what. This class is about learning how much you want to learn and that is based on how much time you spend in your free time to learn. This course is a giant game of connect the dots and the more events you learn, the more it all connects. So for it to make sense and leave an impact on you really keep your face in the book.
