    Description

    Richard M. Nixon On the Fall of Saigon Fine content typed letter signed, "Richard," 7" x 10.5", New York, February 22, 1985, to former British Prime Minister Edward Heath concerning the former President's recently published book No More Vietnams. Nixon adds an autograph salutation, "Dear Ted" and writes in full, "Since April 30th will mark the tenth anniversary of the fall of Saigon, we shall probably be inundated in the weeks ahead with scores of books, columns, and television documentaries criticizing and lamenting the American role in Vietnam. The enclosed book presents a different point of view. There can be an honest difference of opinion over whether we should have become involved in Vietnam and how the war was conducted. But after witnessing the reign of terror that has been imposed upon the people of Vietnam and Cambodia by the Communist regimes we opposed, fair-minded observers can reach only one conclusion: Whatever our mistakes, the United States tried and failed in a just cause in Vietnam. As I put it in the last paragraph of this book, ''No more Vietnams' can mean that we should not try again. I should mean we must not fail again." Extremely clean and bright; in excellent condition. Nicely matted with gilt accents and an engraving of Nixon. From the collection of Bradley O'Leary. Accompanied by COA from PSA/DNA.
