POLL DESCRIPTION
Ambush Valley is the Vietnam/Indochina supplement from Osprey/Ambush Alley Games for their Force on Force rules system. The back cover text reads:
In the 44-year-long history of the Cold War, few conflicts symbolized it as fully as those in Vietnam and Indochina. To contemporary observers, the Vietnam War was a clash between two ideological blocs of Communism and the West…
Given that the Vietnam War is certainly symbolic of the Cold War, which conflict of that period is the most symbolic of the Cold War?
