From the Publisher"[Moyar's] is a complex and well-written account that set the bar high for scholarship. It is essential reading for anyone wanting a fresh understanding of one of America's longest and misunderstood conflicts."
- Marine Corp Gazette
"Moyar's work is an excellent modern read on the Viet-Nam War."
"The well-researched analysis of policies runs deep, but there's also military analysis and accounts of important military action. This is revisionist history at its best."
-Christian Nelson, VietNow
"Moyar is a fine writer and switches from broad strategic and geopolitical issues to heart-gripping accounts of key military actions...Today's military leaders and policy-makers would do well to ponder this book."
"The most noteworthy aspect of Triumph Forsaken is surely the depth and range of its research... Taking him at his word - that he set out to redo the history of the war on the basis of primary sources 'rather than another's filtration and interpretation' of them - Moyar has provided those who take their history seriously with a stunning performance, and plenty to think about."
- Times Literary Supplement
"I know of no scholar more dedicated to bringing a thorough and accurate portrayal of America's involvement in Vietnam than Mark Moyar. Everyone who is interested in a full picture of that oftmisunderstood war should be grateful for his effort."
- James Webb, Marine combat veteran, author of Fields of Fire and Born Fighting
