words of wisdom, most history teachers dont know ****
My history teacher tried teaching us about Vietnam (my favorite war to study...I'm insanely knowledgable on the war) and failed miserably. Let's just list some of the things he said:

*Tet Offensive was a failed US attack on North Vietnam that turned the public against the war
FALSE: The Tet Offensive was a failed attack on South Vietnam by the NVA and Vietcong. We ANNIHILATED them, so much so that throughout the remainder of the war, the Vietcong was all but eliminated.

*Napalm was a chemical defoliator.
FALSE: Napalm is basically gelatinized gasoline. It was made to burn, and burn, and burn, and burn...and then burn some more.

*Napalm was not used as an anti-personnel weapon.
FALSE: Napalm was DEFINITELY used against people. In fact, it was one of the most effective weapons we had in Vietnam.
