The Vietnam War is a timely account of the 6,000-day conflict in Southeast Asia. The book begins with the history of South East Asia during World War II, before discussing the French involvement in the First Indochina War, and the subsequent drawing-in of the United States and its allies, Australia and South Korea.
The repercussions of this bitter, tragic and costly conflict were far-reaching, for it has affected US foreign policy ever since. As the book reveals, the war remains a fascinating military study, embracing such diverse topics as guerrilla and conventional warfare, urban and jungle fighting, and political and ideological struggle.
The lucid, authoritative text includes eye-witness accounts of the battles and incidents of America’s undeclared war. The book provides a graphic and compelling account of one of the most brutal conflicts of modern history.
This is a text-only ebook edition.
