French Lessons

Posted On Sep 9, 2021 By Addison Wiggin

When the first U.S. military forces entered Afghanistan in October 2001, they were hoping to succeed where the Soviet Union and Great Britain had failed before them. There was a similar confidence when U.S. forces started fighting in Vietnam in March 1965. Except in this case, they were hoping to outperform the French… who had exited the country in defeat just a decade earlier. The U.S. probably assumed it had nothing to learn from France — dismissing it as a nation of “cheese-eating surrender monkeys” after it submitted to Germany early in World World War II. But when it came to butchering each other, what the French didn’t know about it probably wasn’t worth knowing.
