The article focuses on the Vietnam War. General Hoar was commissioned in 1957. He commanded infantry units from platoon through regimental level. He also commanded three Marine air-ground task forces. The involvement in Southeast Asia began long before 1959. What was going on in the 1960s in Southeast Asia was part of a vast upheaval that began before World War II — the effort of oppressed peoples around the world, but most especially in Asia and Africa, to throw off their colonial masters. Wars of national liberation, narrowly averted in India, had spread across French Indochina, along with British, Belgian, and French Africa.
