    Not for the casual reader.

    Covers major military operations. No maps or basic glossary. Book is not for the general reader on the history of the war but would offer good reference document for researcher. The presentation format is rather stiff, akin to filing out a form although the consistency makes it easy to access information. If data on casualties was not included in primary source documents (unit operational reports), there is no information even though the author used other sources where estimates were provided. If you use this as reference document, you will need to access other sources for more complete information. The index is incomplete. With all the activity around III Corps in summer of 1970, there were no index references to Phuoc Long Province, Phuoc Binh, Nui Ba Ra, or FSB Union. Just filling out the forms and this could have been an outstanding reference with a little more work. The reference to Operation Phoenix is an example: there are several summarized notations (only one is listed in the Index) for a program that had significant impact on the VC/NVA infrastructure. At 184 pages in paperback format, the price was a bit steep ($35.95 B&N member price) when compared with similar publications.
