Review

""The Vietnam War" is a useful introduction to the conflict in keeping with the mandate of the Seminar Studies in History Series." "Andrew L. Johns, H-Net Reviews"

From the Back Cover

This is a concise and accessible introduction to the Vietnam war. Books in this Seminar Studies in History series bridge the gap between textbook and specialist survey and consists of a brief "Introduction" and/or "Background" to the subject, valuable in bringing the reader up-to-speed on the area being examined, followed by a substantial and authoritative section of "Analysis" focusing on the main themes and issues. There is a succinct "Assessment" of the subject, a generous selection of "Documents" and a detailed bibliography.Begins by exploring the origins of the conflict and then focuses on the war itself, taking the story through to 1975 and North Vietnam's victory. MARKET For those interested in US History , the Vietnam War or Southeast Asian history.

Format: Paperback
The book introduces the reader to Vietnam, including a brief history of Vietnamese heritage and histories, through the Geneva Conflict into 1964. Here Hall divulges a little more, breaking up the conflict evenly, managing to retain some sence of proceedings in the hectic chaos. Most useful of all is the documents (23) at the end of the book, constantly cross-referenced. The book is perfect for an introduction for the vietnam war, and gives historical interpretations near the close. American faliure lies with the post-revisionists.
Perfect for studentsm like myself. Stimulates further reading.
