I bought this in Vietnam and it’s been sitting on my shelves for a couple of years. I thought it was older, but copy is just well used.
I learned a lot about the Vietnam war from this. Maybe because it was written by journalists who were there. The events of the story were given solid foundations with the history and strategy of the war. The mini-bios of those involved were well-crafted and thoughtful. The atmosphere of the time, and the details of the work of the journalists gave a rich depth.
I’m glad I persevered. I found the preface slow going, perhaps also repeating what was in the foreword, and I almost abandoned it.
