Publisher's Summary

The Vietnam War. From the gory photos captured on the ground to the protest songs that soundtracked a generation of rebels and radicals, this 20-year war left a mark on the world that’s not going to disappear soon. If you live in the United States (not to mention Vietnam itself), you’ve probably been affected by the war - whether you know it or not.
But do you wish you had answers to some questions about the war? What were the stories behind the iconic pictures? Why did it divide the United States more than any war before or since? Would you like to be able to casually explain an issue or relate a story that would shock or impress the whole room? With the help of this Vietnam War book, you can! In just a few minutes a day, you can be an expert in Vietnam War history and impress both your friends and your history teachers. 
Each chapter of our trivia book is broken up into 15 bite-size sections. These sections are either interesting stories or clear, simple breakdowns of the Vietnam War’s main issues. It’s a pretty complicated war, but unlike most war books, this one will make those difficult issues seem easy and exciting. 
Every chapter also ends with 20 fascinating facts and five quick questions to test your knowledge. And unlike some Vietnam War books, we’re not going to overwhelm you with a million dates and names - our Vietnam War stories are guaranteed to both intrigue and educate! 
Get ready to meet characters from Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam’s George Washington, to Peter Lemon, drug enthusiast and Medal of Honour winner. Find out what led to the war and why it went so badly. Meet the people in Vietnam who risked their lives and the people in America who stood up against the war. Learn why the Soviet Union stayed away, how a herbicide changed the definition of a war crime, and how Harris Tweed suits saved lives.

A great overview of the Vietnam War

Similar to 'War Trivia Book 1", which covered World War 2, this book gives a overview of the events leading up to the war, the players and politics, the main offensives, the reactions abroad, and the ongoing legacy of the war. It is a great, quick, overview for anyone wanting to get a basic understanding of the Vietnam war. The flow is great, allowing readers to build knowledge as they go. It is clear to see how the Vietnam was became such a schamozzle for the USA.

Spread throughout the book there is little trivia and strange facts that, while not required to understand the war, add depth to the history. They are the interesting little pieces that make you want to know more, and that you may not see in other history books.

O'Neill includes small revision quizzes at the end of each chapter to test yourself and make sure you have picked up the information contained previously.

Narration by Derek Newman is good. Clear and easy to follow, he is well paced. Nothing exciting in the narration but good solid, enjoyable work.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
