Description

NATIONAL BESTSELLER ? Based on the celebrated PBS television series, the complete text of an engrossing history of America's least-understood conflict, "a significant milestone [that] will no doubt do much to determine how the war is understood for years to come." -- The Washington Post

More than forty years have passed since the end of the Vietnam War, but its memory continues to loom large in the national psyche. In this intimate history, Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns have crafted a fresh and insightful account of the long and brutal conflict that reunited Vietnam while dividing the United States as nothing else had since the Civil War. From the Gulf of Tonkin and the Tet Offensive to Hamburger Hill and the fall of Saigon, Ward and Burns trace the conflict that dogged three American presidents and their advisers. But most of the voices that echo from these pages belong to less exalted men and women -- those who fought in the war as well as those who fought against it, both victims and victors -- willing for the first time to share their memories of Vietnam as it really was. A magisterial tour de force, The Vietnam War is an engrossing history of America's least-understood conflict.
