From the Publisher"A grand and important work of synthesis by a diligent, engaged scholar with telling insights gained from years of reflection on a vast and complex subject."
Journal of American History
"Prados directly engages, and in many cases, demolishes, a host of shibboleths about the war. But this is no mere polemic. Rather, Prados's powerfully presented and meticulously argued account, buttressed by a staggering amount of documentary evidence, meets the most exacting standards of scholarship. His sweeping history forms the capstone of more than three decades of careful research and measured reflection on the Vietnam War. . . . It may be the single most important book yet written on the Vietnam conflict."
American Historical Review
"A remarkable achievement [and] one of the most significant books published on Vietnam in the last decade."
Journal of Military History
"This is the book [on the Vietnam War] we've been waiting for. . . . It definitely establishes itself as the new standard."
"If you only had to have one book on the Vietnam War, this is the one."
"This important and provocative work should be read by anyone studying the war, whether in academia or from personal interest."

"An awe-inspiring achievement in epic form."—Lloyd Gardner, author of Pay Any Price: Lyndon Johnson and the Wars for Vietnam
