The Vietnam Syndrome and the conflict in former Yugoslavia.
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis investigates to what extent the U.S. experience in the Vietnam War and the lessons learned from it, a phenomenon known as the 'Vietnam Syndrome,' influenced the decision by the United States not to intervene during the early stages of the Balkan conflict. The study will argue that the Vietnam War was used as a historical analogy for the current situation in former Yugoslavia. I further argue that this method was an improperly used historical parallel and should not have been applied.
