More than 40 years after it ended, we still argue over the Vietnam War—why we were there, whether we could have won, who was right and wrong in their response to the conflict—and the resulting political fault lines continue to divide us today. Based on the PBS documentary series by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, Geoffrey Ward's companion volume is a stunning, close-up history illustrated with more than 500 photos, and extensively quotes the personal views and remembrances of people involved on all sides of the conflict, including U.S. and Vietnamese soldiers, their families, high-level officials, antiwar protesters, and POWs.
