The Epilogue relates the Conflict in Vietnam with the Afghanistan War, arguing that there are lessons to be learned from the defeats of South Vietnam and Cambodia that can be applied current U.S. efforts, specifically that United States military aid to embattled nations must be matched by its political strength and popular support to insure a positive outcome. Without these, it argues, military assistance will inevitably be withdrawn, thus abandoning the embattled nations.
