    This was the first book I ever read on Vietnam -- and I was very quick to assume that Westmoreland was to blame, as Sorley wanted me to believe. However, I kept reading, figuring that there was "more to the story" of Vietnam than was mentioned by Sorely. I have purchased several more books from B&N and have come to the conclusion that while Sorley's book about Westmoreland might offer some insight in the more mundane problems of the Vietnam war (as related to Westmoreland), it certainly does NOT give the reader the entire picture of the war and the political issues and the thought process of the North Vietnamese and how these were more of the major issues facing the administrators of the Vietnam War. I would recommend reading this, because the user will undoubtedly gain some insight into the war's problems -- but this book in no way goes into all of the problems of the vietnam war. The reader will just have to keep reading other books to get the whole picture. So reader, please read this and then keep reading other Vietnam history -- only in this way will you learn what Vietnam was about.
