Overview

Eight million tons of bombs dropped. $145 million spent (at 1974 prices). 47,359 U.S. soldiers killed. 900,000 North Vietnamese and Viet Cong killed. The real cost of America’s involvement in the struggle for Vietnam is staggering. Even today, people in the U.S. and Asia still feel the reverberations of this conflict. The Timeline of the Vietnam War is a blow-by-blow account of the controversial war.

• This unique book examines the war as it unfolded, year-by-year, from French Colonial days and early U.S. involvement to the final days of war and its aftermath.
• Authoritative text charts the progress of the war, focusing on key events such as the Tet Offensive, the horrific My Lai Massacre and the Paris Peace Accords of 1973, which officially ended the United States’ involvement in the war.
• Illustrated throughout with color and black-and-white images, this account brings the war to life — analysis brings the war into focus. At the bottom of each page, a timeline linking events happening elsewhere at the time provides context.
• An 8-page double-sided gatefold timeline profiles key events throughout the war in a unique graphic representation, with cut-out images and color keys under various themes and headings.
