A Case Study of the 1979 Sino-Vietnamese War
By Christopher M. Gin, Major, US Army
The Army Press is pleased to announce the publishing of “How China Wins: A Case Study of the 1979 Sino-Vietnamese War”, the latest volume in the Art of War Series. This study examines whether or not China won a strategic victory in its invasion of Vietnam in 1979, and what relevance that victory may have on today’s study of Chinese strategy and military thought.
