VIETNAM: AN EPIC HISTORY OF A DIVISIVE WAR 1945-1975

Synopsis

Vietnam became the Western world's most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a battlefield humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Max Hastings has spent years interviewing scores of participants on both sides, as well as researching a multitude of American and Vietnamese documents and memoirs, to create this epic narrative of a huge struggle.
