Vietnam War Atrocities and How They Were Covered-Up
Sponsored by Department of History
Monday, November 4, 2013
Throughout modern history, armies have contended with “irregulars” — enemies who hide among the citizenry and favor hit-and-run attacks over open battles. This semester, Franklin & Marshall College hosts four outstanding scholars who will discuss the theory and practice of guerrilla warfare and counter-insurgency, from the American Revolution and the Napoleonic Wars to the era of “national liberation” following World War II.
The third lecture in the "Irregular Wars" series will be presented by Nick Turse, managing editor of TomDispatch.com and a fellow at th eNation Institute. An award-winning journalist, his work has appeared in the Los Angeles Times, The Nation and regularly at TomDispatch. He is the author most recently of the New York Times bestseller Kill Anything that Moves: The Real American War in Vietnam.
The "Irregular Wars" special lecture series is sponsored by the departments of History, American Studies and International Studies; the Center for Liberal Arts and Society; and the Public Affairs Lecture Fund.
This event is open to the public.
