In roughly 2500 words, compare the Cold War (CW) and the War Against Terror (WAT) in general terms, and specifically compare the wars in Afghanistan and Vietnam.
How were the CW and WAT similar? Are there any important differences? Was the Vietnam war fought in ways comparable to the war in Afghanistan? How so? Here you might focus on high-altitude bombing, counter-insurgency, training of local armed forces (“Vietnamization”), crimes against humanity, the conduct of the Vietnamese and Afghan allies, etc.
There is no need to do any research beyond those materials assigned for class, for the relevant weeks.
Due May 6 by 11:59pm, via email and in .doc or .docx files.
