Modern Europe, the Cold War and Vietnam Reading List

This is the list from the second faculty member for my Modern Europe field.  The emphasis is definitely Cold War and Vietnam, with some other major topics thrown in for good measure.  The emphasis here is on historiography and debates in the field, which I find significantly more difficult than creating a narrative response.
