Publisher's Summary

Explore the captivating history of the Vietnam War!
The Vietnam War represented a watershed not only in American and Vietnamese history but also internationally. It wasn’t just a battle between two nations, but between two ideologies, two military strategies, and a fight for the hearts and minds of two vastly different national populations.   
Few conflicts in global history symbolize as much as Vietnam. From the civil rights movement to the role of the media in warfare, the Vietnam War was unique in the sense that it could not be contained as a military matter but transcended every area of Vietnamese and American society. The word "Vietnam" describes an era of history, not just an isolated war in a small nation in Southeast Asia. It is the lens through which the America and Vietnam of today must be interpreted. Few conflicts have or will ever shape the world as much as the Vietnam War.   
Some of the topics and questions covered in this audiobook include:  

The French and the First Indochina War
Out of the frying pan, into the fire: The government of Ngo Dinh Diem
Pragmatism and idealism
The death of two Catholic presidents
Smoke and mirrors: Johnson’s war

Couldn't stop listening

Any additional comments?

It was an interesting book. I had no idea what the men felt like that were over there. The author seemed very sincere in his account of daily life there.

He is a great writer who tells the story from personal experience. This is not meant to be a just historical review of all sides. That in mind, it is outstanding.
