General William C. Westmoreland        1914-2005

 

 

Gen. William C. Westmoreland

commanded United States forces

in Vietnam from 1964 to 1968

Westmoreland

commanded U.S. troops

in South Vietnam

as the U.S. military presence

grew from about 20,000 advisers

in early 1964

to 500,000 troops

in 1968.

 

Facing a confounding enemy,

a fearful public

turning rapidly hostile

and an undependable ally

in the South Vietnamese

government,

Westmoreland

came to personify

the military establishment

against which a generation

rebelled.
