Editorial Reviews

Review

"An important . . . book . . . well worth reading. A unique addition to the history of the war. . . . While heavily laced with Marxist-Leninist rhetoric and Socialist propaganda, the book offers unique, often surprising insights."--Military Review

"A significant addition to the historiography of the Vietnam War. . . . The importance of this book is that it provides the viewpoint of our enemy during our longest and probably most controversial war."--Armor

"This book is important and will serve as an essential source for those writing about the Vietnam War. If for no other reason, scholars and students will be able to refer to it to discover the official Hanoi position on various aspects of the war."--The Historian

"This translation offers Asian specialists of all disciplines, military and political historians, and students of revolutionary movements a wealth of information, much of it previously unavailable in any language, and a critical perspective that are certain to stimulate controversy and suggest new avenues of research for decades to come. As such, Victory in Vietnam is essential reading."--Journal of Asian Studies

"This book, the definitive statement of the Vietnamese communist point of view, reveals that many of the accepted truths in our own histories of the war are simply wrong."--Air & Space Power Journal

"Merle Pribbenow's fine translation of this important PAVN official history of the war from 1954 to 1975 contains much detail never before available in English. . . . A valuable resource for serious students of the Vietnam War."--Edwin E. Moïse, author of Tonkin Gulf and the Escalation of the Vietnam War

"Pribbenow's skillful and graceful translation provides valuable insights into many aspects of the Vietnam War from the North Vietnamese perspective, which is often surprisingly candid. He deserves our thanks for making this important volume accessible to a wider audience."--Lewis Sorley, author of A Better War

"Fills a yawning gap in the growing literature on the Vietnam War."--William J. Duiker, author of Ho Chi Minh: A Life
