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.

Goodnight Siagon! Good Morning Vietnam!!

I fell into this series with book 3, the one about the Civil War, and loved the way it was written and set up. I enjoyed the quizes at the end of each chapter, and felt that even though it was under five hours in length that it was informative and interesting.

Well, this book is just as good. It would seem that all the books in this series follow the same format, and so all the good things of one book will follow in the next. Here we get to know a lot about how the whole shebang got started, get introduced to some lesser known individuals and events, as well as the better ones. I wish they had a book like this on the Korean War, too. As a MASH fan that would really hit the spot. Thankfully, my Platoon interests filled the bill here, and I learned a lot even though I had grown up right in the middle of this mess of a war.

Newman is an excellent narrator. He keeps you captivated, and does not merely inform, he educates you and piques your interests. That is a rare quality in a narrator. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Not my favorite historical time period but ...

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

This book did a good job of clarifying one of the most muddled, confusing, messes of a war that is part of our country's history. I have conflicting feelings about that time period in the U.S. and this war in particular. This helped bring things into a bit of perspective. Don't think it'll really change much about how I feel about the war as a whole but it helped understand things a bit better. Once again, the narrator did a solid job. Recommended for anyone who enjoys history and/or wartime history.

The Vietnam War History

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

This was well researched and well written, and I love O’Neill’s trivia books. I just find myself slightly disappointed with this book because it reads more like a history of the Vietnam War with a few trivia facts, rather than a trivia book about the Vietnam War.

That being said, I did learn a lot and I did enjoy it.
