'An informative, impressive, and invaluable study of North Vietnam's conduct of its war with the United States. A major contribution!' George C. Herring, University of Kentucky
'Finally a concise, penetrating, and insightful account of the Vietnam War as seen from the other side. Relying on a wealth of new Vietnamese sources, Pierre Asselin does what few have ever achieved: he has provided a highly readable general history of communist Vietnam's "American War.' Christopher Goscha, Université du Québec ... Montréal
'From the fog of a bitter and divisive thirty-year war, Pierre Asselin stands at the forefront of scholars helping to illuminate the reasons North Vietnam prevailed in its American War. Vietnamese history, personalities, politics, military strategies, and transcending ideologies are brilliantly distilled in this insightful analysis of war, its aftermath, and the eventual peace.' Larry Berman, University of California, Davis
'Through extensive use of Vietnamese language sources, Pierre Asselin's valuable and perceptive explanation of the war - its origins, conduct, outcome, and legacy - provides a long-needed analysis centering on Hanoi from start to finish and on how this small nation prevailed in a test of wills with the powerful United States.' David L. Anderson, California State University, Monterey Bay
'Professor Asselin expertly and straightforwardly relates the Vietnamese communist experience - and the reasons the war turned out the way it did. Offering a unique and impressively informed and informative perspective, Vietnam's American War: A History is an extraordinary study of exceptional scholarship and unreservedly recommended for both community and academic library Vietnam War collections and supplemental studies lists.' Midwest Book Review
This book surveys the Vietnamese communist experience during the Vietnam War (1954-75) with a focus on high-level decision-making. Written in an accessible, narrative style geared toward non-experts, the book presents a history of Vietnamese communist strategy, decision-making, and policies, including key battle plans.
