Why was the Vietnam War so contentious, and how did one of the world's superpowers fail to defeat a much less wealthy and populous opponent? Why was the Vietnam War of such global significance and how has it affected people on both sides of the conflict? This book seeks to relate the overall events and chronology of the war and show its impact on everyday lives.
