Reviews

"Exceptionally engaging. . . . A significant milestone [that] will no doubt do much to determine how the war is understood for years to come." -The Washington Post

"Stunning. . . . The best single-volume history of the war. . . . Assembled from a multitude of overlapping voices, American and Vietnamese, [The Vietnam War] tells the long story from every conceivable angle, from veterans and protesters to draft-dodgers and prisoners of war to politicians and grunts." -Mark Bowden, Philadelphia Inquirer

"Captivating." -The New York Times Book Review

"Exquisitely written." -The Guardian
