About the Author

Sir Max Hastings chronicles Vietnam with the benefit of vivid personal memories: first of reporting in 1967-68 from the United States, where he encountered many of the war's decision-makers including President Lyndon Johnson, then of successive assignments in Indochina for newspapers and BBC TV: he rode a helicopter out of the US Saigon embassy compound during the 1975 final evacuation. He is the author of twenty-six books, most about conflict, and between 1986 and 2002 served as editor-in-chief of the Daily Telegraph, then editor of the Evening Standard. He has won many prizes both for journalism and his books, of which the most recent are All Hell Let Loose, Catastrophe and The Secret War, best-sellers translated around the world. He has two grown-up children, Charlotte and Harry, and lives with his wife Penny in West Berkshire, where they garden enthusiastically.

Reviews

"We've seen a shelf-load of histories, analyses, memoirs, and novels on Vietnam. But what Hastings does in Vietnam is pull all these genres together in a highly readable and vivid narrative that, I think, will become the standard on the war for many years to come."--NPR.org
"A comprehensive and compelling narrative that illuminates political and military tactics and strategies -- and the daily realities of a war that killed 2 million people."--Pittsburgh Post Gazette
"This is a comprehensive, spellbinding, surprisingly intimate, and altogether magnificent historical narrative."--Tim O'Brien, author of Pulitzer Prize finalist The Things They Carried
"This balanced and insightful book is a pleasure to read. It destroys the fantasy that one side or the other held the moral high ground or a monopoly on devastating folly."--Karl Marlantes, author of What It Is Like to Go to War and Matterhorn: A Novel of the Vietnam War
