The honesty and forth righteousness of Legacy's direct testimonies, which undoubtedly will be the final published comments on Vietnam by several of the participants, are remarkable and make for a book of historic importance. I started reading it with the intention of looking at one or two chapters. I was immediately caught up in the book; I couldn't put it down. Legacy is a wonderful read! If ever you wanted to read under one cover the perspectives of the Who's Who of the Vietnam War era, this is the book!

A whole new look at Vietnam. This is the VERY best book about the Vietnam experience ever produced. Gil Dorland has done the world a favor.

Dorland gives us a book that is insightfull from both the standpoint of the knowledge of those he interviews and the persistency, clarity and consistent track of his questions. I thought that I had read all all there was to know about the Vietnam War before Legacy Of Discord, but I was wrong. This concise and important work will join the applauded and often controversial 'must read' collection of books on Vietnam. Hopefully, it will help to once again raise the conciousness of the American people to understand what went down, in the words of those intimately involved, and why we can't ever let it happen again.

Finally, someone tells all sides to the war. The candor of the interviews surprised me. Dorland does a masterful job making them read like a novel. I couldn't put the book down.

I think Dorland and his interviewees show us how divergent views still are about this brutal, bloody war. This is why we must never forget that Vietnam survived, yet America died a little (that will never make the war worth it unless we learned something).

Gil Dorland did a wonderful job bringing together different people with differing opinions from the Vietnam era. John McCain, Henry Kissinger, Daniel Ellsberg, and Tom Hayden all tell in detail how they felt about the war and why. Anyone wanting to understand that often misunderstood period in U.S. history should read this book.

I have a whole new appreciation of Vietnam Veterans. What a book.
