HIST 1302 Vietnam Essay Guidelines
Sources: Vietnam Interviews (Both are in PDF on Canvas):
1) Interview with Mavin Mathiak
2) Interview with Gonzalo Baltazar

Write a 4-6 page, double-spaced essay in which you develop a theme that you find particularly interesting in both of
the above interviews.

Any topic will work so long as Mathiak and Baltazar provide enough information for you to fully flesh-out your essay.

Treat these as primary sources (which they are), and use the information provided by each Vietnam veteran as a basis to back-up your argument-driven essay.

A good essay should:
Consist of 4-6 pages well thought-out, flawless, double-spaced pages.
Garamond 12 font.
1 inch margins.
Develop an argument and angle that you find especially compelling.
E.g. Soldier’s experience, death, environment, etc.
Exhibit a high degree of analysis—not merely a re-telling the story.

Not involve the use of any other source.
The use of any outside source other than those provided will result in an automatic failure.

NOT be a “book report.” This is a primary source-based essay. Think of it as a mini-research paper in which you use only two sources.

Not be plagiarized—this will result in automatic failure of the class, as per the syllabus.

Be turned-in on time. No late papers will be accepte d.
– Direct quotes should be cite d like this:

“When they brought food and water they’d bring mail” (Mathiak, 30).
Detaile d information from the interviews that is paraphrase d or summarized should still be cite d with a page number or range of page numbers, e.g.

It’s best to step back and take a big view to understand U.S. involvement in Vietnam in the 1960s and early ’70s.
