Abstract

This thesis compares and contrasts key moments in the wars in Vietnam and Afghanistan to identify why each war became a stalemate. It then looks for substantive commonalities between those reasons. The purpose of this examination is to discover three things: First, whether policymakers made similar decisions in each war that led to stalemate; second, what these roads to stalemate reveal about how to avoid such problems in the future; and third, what these wars tell us generally about the use of force.
