It is written with compassion and fairness to all of the victims; it provides a balanced overview for the novice or expert.

Vietnam: An American Ordeal. George Donelson Moss.

This book provides a comprehensive narrative history of U.S. involvement in Southeast Asia, from 1942 to 1975--with a concluding section that traces U.S.-Vietnam relations from the end of the war in 1975 to the present. Unlike most general histories of U.S. involvement in Vietnam--which are either conventional diplomatic or military histories--this volume synthesizes the perspectives to explore both dimensions of the struggle in greater depth, elucidating more of the complexities of the U.S.-Vietnam entanglement. It explains why Americans tried so hard for so long to stop the spread of Communism into Indochina, and why they failed. Key topics: The Fall of Saigon: The End as Prelude. Vietnam: A Place and A People. The Elephant and the Tiger. An Experiment in Nation Building. Raising the Stakes. Going to War. The Chain of Thunders. The Year of the Monkey. A War to End a War. The End of the Tunnel. Market: For anyone curious to know about the long American involvement in Southeast Asia, 1942-1975.

I purchased this book as a textbook, and that is likely the only reason I would have ever spent this much money on a paperback history of the Vietnam War.

It is absolutely riveting. I honestly cannot understand why anyone would say it is poorly-written. Of all the textbooks I have ever been forced to read in college, this one is the one which came closest to becoming a pleasure read. The narrative is exceptionally politically-neutral, and as a member of the generation born to veterans of this war, I cannot thank the author enough for his treatment of this subject. Our fathers will not talk to us about the Vietnam War, and Hollywood's portrayals are all skewed to the point of being useless as information. We feel our ignorance and lament the inability of our parents to explain it to us. This book does it...and does it well. I'm so grateful that my professor chose this book for us to use. It's wonderful, and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

As a textbook, it delivers. The paper is thick enough to withstand highlighting without bleed-through. The margin on the lefthand side of the pages is more than an inch thick, making it simple and convenient to make notes in the margins as you read. It is lightweight and a good size for comfort.

I have to give it an enthusiastic five stars.

This book is an anti-American and pro-commie disinformation tract. "Communism" doesn't even appear in the index. Wake up, people! The American home front was also a target of the Vietnamese communist warmonger Giap. The author of this book is an example of just how successful Giap's psychological warfare was on a portion of the American population. I suggest Davidson's history on Vietnam warring, 1946-75. You will find the truth in Davidson's book.
