In this illustrated war volume, the authors show the battles, leaders, weapons, heroism, and pain of the Vietnam War, from its earliest beginnings to the fall of Saigon in 1975. ... Through more than 450 official and personal photographs (both U.S. and Vietnamese), they reveal the courage, the loneliness, and the fears of the three and a half million U.S. soldiers, Marines, airmen, and seamen who served in America's longest war. We all have pictures of the Vietnam War in our minds. It was the war that shaped an entire generation, and its images are captured here. Includes an index and bibliography. Fully illustrated with captions and text. Small remainder mark on bottom. Read more Show Less
