Frequently bought together

"Simply terrific. If I were teaching the Vietnam War, I would rush to use it. The photos are extraordinary and the documents powerful. There is no better single volume on the war that makes the events and ideas come alive as this book does."--Howard Zinn, author of A People's History of the United States
"Comprised of first- and second-hand accounts of American policy in Vietnam during the 1960s. Its primary sources are held together chronologically with narrative. Political cartoons, U.S. government files, Vietnamese iconography, and song lyrics by Bruce Springsteen are among the book's most compelling and evocative elements."--Hampshire Gazette
"Provides historials and students of history with a wealth of first-hand information missing from past conflicts. Those "primary sources"...provide the basis for a different way to teach history - allowing students to decide the meaning."--Longmeadow News

Steven A. Leibo Ph.D.
author of _East, Southeast Asia and the Western Pacific_ 2002
Both the design and content are seriously lacking for the intended audience, grades 7+. Important facts are left out while other facts are pathetically incorrect; most captions are mislabeled, and many �documents� are indistinguishable from the narrative text. Sadly, even in 2003 it appears America still has Post Traumatic Stress Denial with parts of our own history.
