Few wars have had such a deep impact on the American people than the Vietnam War.Gerard de Groot's clear-eyed treatment covers the military events, the political and strategic contexts, as well as the social and cultural impact of the war. It's a powerful study which offers fresh insights into the communist revolution and military tactics, the flaws in US strategy and the legacy of the war both for Vietnam and America. An important new study on a subject often masked by sentiment and myth.
