    Best Explanation of French Indochina War and How the U.S. Took It On

    Simply the best writing and the best analysis of the French Indochina War of 1945-54 and how the U.S. came to take it over from the French. The Pulitzer Prize was given for this outstanding history which until this book was published had never been fully explained. If you want to understand how American got involved in a land 10,000 miles away with no direct U.S. interest, you must read "Embers of War: The Fall of an Empire and the Making of America's Vietnam." It is a gripping story.

    Extremely well-written.

    Superb summary of the background to US participation in the Vietnam war.
    The details about the behind-the-scenes role of Eisenhower are a revelation. Indispensable if you wish to know what a cusp of inevitability and chance the modern world was founded on.
