Format: Hardcover
This is the best factual reference book I've seen on the Vietnam War. Not only are the entries concise and PREcise, some of them are humorous as well. The author's personality shines though the entries even though they are treated with respect and...pride. Highly recommended for authors, researchers, and Vietnam veterans.
