ARCHIVAL SOURCES

Marine Corps Historical Center (MHC). Located in Washington, D.C., the MHC is the headquarters of the Marine Corps History and Museums Division. It holds an enormous archive of Vietnam-related materials, including command chronologies, after-action reports, and operational journal files. Most useful to this study was its massive collection of oral histories. Marine Corps historians conducted approximately 5,000 taped interviews with marines of all ranks who served in Vietnam.

U.S. Army Center for Military History (CMH). The CMH, in Washington, D.C., contains an extensive Vietnam archive, but my research there was brief and primarily confined to the taped interviews. The army's Vietnam oral history collection includes several hundred interviews, mostly with officers.

Personal Files. These include tapes and transcripts of interviews I conducted between 1981 and 1987 with approximately 100 Vietnam veterans.
