Democratic US president (1963–69) Lyndon Baines Johnson (1908–73) was more comfortable with domestic rather than international affairs, and his reputation will always be sullied by the decision in 1965 to wage war in Vietnam – by 1968 there were 500,000 US troops there, with no victory in sight. However, he implemented more successful policies in Western Europe and in relation to the Soviet Union. The Nuclear Non‐Proliferation Treaty of 1968 could also be claimed among the achievements.
