This collection of contemporaneous news accounts helps people like me raised after the Vietnam War gain a better understanding of the period. Most of the journalists are either liberals who hated the war or liberals who initially supported it but quickly turned against it. This does not discount the quality of what they saw and reported. However, many important points are simply omitted. Also, by stopping at 1975, the oppression which followed in Vietnam and the killing fields of communist Cambodia are inevitably ignored. It is hard to understand why the war was fought until you fully appreciate what happened after the Americans left.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
