Legacy of Discord: Voices of the Vietnam Era

Twenty-eight years have passed since the fall of Saigon. We still seek answers to the era's pressing issues. And those who were responsible for planning the Vietnam War, those who fought in it, those who fought against it, and those who reported it have had ample time to reflect on its meaning and on their personal involvement. In Legacy of Discord, skilled interviewer Gil Dorland discusses serious, unresolved issues with Peter Arnett, Mike Davison, Daniel Ellsberg, Gloria Emerson, Alexander Haig, David ...

In Legacy of Discord, skilled interviewer Gil Dorland discusses serious, unresolved issues with Peter Arnett, Mike Davison, Daniel Ellsberg, Gloria Emerson, Alexander Haig, David Halberstam, Tom Hayden, Le Ly Hayslip, Roger Hilsman, John Kerry, Henry Kissinger, Cau Le, Barry McCaffrey, John McCain, H. R. McMaster, Tom Polgar, Norman Schwarzkopf, Jim Webb, and William C. Westmoreland. For the many veterans, students, and others still seeking to understand this great national tragedy, Legacy of Discord will be a book of historic importance.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“No other book chronicles the continuing debate over this most controversial of wars from so many different perspectives.”

“A real cross section of ‘voices’ and certainly a notable who’s who from the era. Their stories convey . . . what was happening more than twenty-five years ago when they were part of history.”

“Provides extraordinary depth and breadth of insight from . . . a diverse range of persons. Readers . . . are rewarded with candid responses to Dorland’s informed and penetration questions.”

“Gil Dorland has accomplished something remarkable.”

    Legacy of Discord: Voices of the Vietnam War Era

    A whole new look at Vietnam. This is the VERY best book about the Vietnam experience ever produced. Gil Dorland has done the world a favor.

    Legacy of Discord: Voices of the Vietnam War Era

    Gil Dorland did a wonderful job bringing together different people with differing opinions from the Vietnam era. John McCain, Henry Kissinger, Daniel Ellsberg, and Tom Hayden all tell in detail how they felt about the war and why. Anyone wanting to understand that often misunderstood period in U.S. history should read this book.

    Bequeathed Disagreement

    Dorland gives us a book that is insightfull from both the standpoint of the knowledge of those he interviews and the persistency, clarity and consistent track of his questions. I thought that I had read all all there was to know about the Vietnam War before Legacy Of Discord, but I was wrong. This concise and important work will join the applauded and often controversial 'must read' collection of books on Vietnam. Hopefully, it will help to once again raise the conciousness of the American people to understand what went down, in the words of those intimately involved, and why we can't ever let it happen again.

    WONDERFUL!

    Finally, someone tells all sides to the war. The candor of the interviews surprised me. Dorland does a masterful job making them read like a novel. I couldn't put the book down.

    In Vietnam we lost, but did we gain from the experience?

    I think Dorland and his interviewees show us how divergent views still are about this brutal, bloody war. This is why we must never forget that Vietnam survived, yet America died a little (that will never make the war worth it unless we learned something).

    Great Read!!

    The honesty and forth righteousness of Legacy's direct testimonies, which undoubtedly will be the final published comments on Vietnam by several of the participants, are remarkable and make for a book of historic importance. I started reading it with the intention of looking at one or two chapters. I was immediately caught up in the book; I couldn't put it down. Legacy is a wonderful read! If ever you wanted to read under one cover the perspectives of the Who's Who of the Vietnam War era, this is the book!
