Description
How did the Vietnam War change the way that we think of ourselves as a people and a nation? In this history, the author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides examines the war's realities and myths, and its ongoing impact on our national self-perception. Drawing on a vast variety of sources—movies (Rambo), songs ("Born in the USA"), official documents, and media coverage, for example—Christian Appy offers an original, opinionated interpretation of the war and its far-reaching consequences for both our popular culture and our foreign policy.

"Few people understand the centrality of the Vietnam War to our situation as much as Christian Appy."—Ken Burns
