In spite of living during the Vietnam era, I never could put all the pieces into a coherent whole. This book really helps listeners to understand just how the war developed. Narrator is very good and makes it easy to listen.

What did you like best about The Vietnam War? What did you like least?
For an otherwise brief overview, it was detailed enough to really make the narrative flow. Sadly though, the author clearly has a political axe to grind, and Nixon remains his villain, just as Kennedy his hero. His heroes do bad things reluctantly, whereas his villains do it malevolently. The same is true in reverse for good things. I still have yet to hear one in which this war can be discussed objectively. Sigh. Perhaps we are still too early write anything objective about this war? In any case, if you can get past his personal political commentary (or if your political orientation aligns with his), you will find this a very informative and fascinating story. One of the more enjoyable reads of the Vietnam War. Peter Berkot also gets high marks for his performance in reading the material.

This is a good introduction to the Vietnam war, I only knew the U.S. part of it and this covers all the history of the wars there both foreign and domestic.
