More Information
This monumemental narrative clarifies, analyzes, and demystifies the tragic ordeal of the Vietnam war. Free of ideological bias, profound in its understanding, and compassionate in its human portrayals, it is filled with fresh revelations drawn from secret documents and from exclusive interviews with the participants - French, American, Vietnamese, Chinese: diplomats, military commanders, high government officials, journalists, nurses, workers, and soldiers. Vietnam: A History puts events and decisions into such sharp focus that we come to understand - and make peace with - a convulsive epoch of our recent history.

WHAT THE EXPERTS ARE SAYING:
"Even those of us who think we know something about it will read with fascination." --The New York Times

"Vietnam: A History is a masterfully written history of America's involvement in Vietnam - certainly one of the two best single-volume histories (along with A Bright Shining Lie, by Neil Sheehan) of America's most regrettable war that I've read. Written by Stanley Karnow, a former Southeast Asian correspondent for Time and Life magazines, and The Washington Post, this book is a comprehensive and fascinating look at the Vietnam war, from its underlying causes at the end of World War II, to the final takeover of South Vietnam by its Communist neighbor, North Vietnam, in April 1975." --Mike Powers
