Summary
Vietnam became the Western world's most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a battlefield humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Max Hastings has spent the past three years interviewing scores of participants on both sides, as well as researching a multitude of American and Vietnamese documents and memoirs, to create an epic narrative of an epic struggle
Summary
The best-selling author of The Secret War draws on survivor interviews from both sides in a modern history of the Vietnam War that discusses its hotly debated political divides, major and lesser-known battles and brutal human costs
