    Has anyone done Part B of the Vietnam Coursework?

    The only help I really need is to know how to structure my main points within my paragraphs. Do I make a point and then quote a historian that agrees with my point (essentially forming a P.E.E paragraph) or what? Help would be much appreciated.

    I can't be specific about Vietnam because I haven't done that (my coursework was on WW1 and WW2) but generally in history when doing PEE/PEEL/PEAR/PEARL/PEAZ (whatever acronym you use), you don't quote a historian as your evidence. From what I've been taught, you just use facts to backup your argument. Say, for example, your point is that "the Nazis were violent," your evidence would be that "they attacked unsuspecting civilians" or whatever. That's incredibly basic and unlikely to be an answer but it's just an example. See what I'm saying?
