Customer Review

on December 7, 2006
We've all read books and seen TV documentaries about the Vietnam and Korean Wars. What I found interesting in Moran's "Wars of National Liberation" were the smaller, non-American wars that I wouldn't ever think of reading an entire book about. Think these wars were insignificant? Moran weaves them all into the familiar history of the Cold War and explains their impact on the 20th Century. Read about Mao's China, the French experience in Vietnam, the French in Algeria, the British departure from India and the creation of Pakistan, the continent-wide problems of Africa and South America, and the three Arab-Israeli wars. The photos are numerous and interesting and the maps superb. The book also includes a chronology from 1945 to 1975 leading to these wars as well as brief biographies of the key players in each conflict. All-in-all a great introduction to several conflicts that you may end up wanting to learn more about.
