Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
This is a good book and an easy read and should be required reading for anyone who wants to better understand the contributions of the junior officers who, unshaven and with muddy boots, carried so much of the burden of the ungentlemanly war in Vietnam.—Journal of America's Military Past

What People are saying about this

From the Publisher
Meticulously documented and extremely readable, Not a Gentleman's War is a balanced and unbiased evaluation of American junior officer leadership in Vietnam. Milam's descriptions allow even those with little military experience to follow his arguments, and his comprehensive approach makes a unique contribution to Vietnam War historiography.—James H. Willbanks, author of Abandoning Vietnam: How America Left and South Vietnam Lost Its War
