General Schwarzkopf

General Schwarzkopf Visual Arts American History Famous People Social Studies

General Norman Schwartzkopf gave an oral history about his years as a military leader.  During that discussion, he made these observations about the war in Vietnam:

If you remember the Vietnam war, we had no international legitimacy for what we did. As a result we, first of all, lost the battle of world public opinion and eventually we lost the battle at home.

General Schwarzkopf led the successful Allied efforts in the First Gulf War.
