Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 8-12-- An adequate, but not very interesting, history of the conflict and America's involvement in it. It is clear and well organized, covering both military and political history in chronological order. Isserman is objective about the war, showing readers how and why the U. S. became increasingly entangled in a situation it would not and eventually could not win. His assessments of both of the war-time Vietnamese governments and the unified postwar government are fair, as are those of the long-term effects of the loss on the United States. Black-and-white photographs and maps are of average quality.The book does not have the detail, emotion, or outstanding writing found in Marrin's America and Vietnam (Viking, 1992), which is a fascinating look at the war and its lasting legacy for both countries. As an addition sources for reports, Isserman's book is a far better choice than Barr's The Vietnam War (Lucent, 1991). --Mary Mueller, Rolla Junior High School, MO

    Good Read.

    I really enjoyed this book. I got it to use as reference with my kids, but ended up reading the whole book.
