The Vietnam War was one of the most controversial conflicts of the 20th century. It was also one of the most divisive. American involvement in Vietnam nearly tore the nation apart, and the war's repercussions remain a part of the public consciousness. Written by military historian Donald Gilmore and edited by D.M. Giangreco - author of "Eyewitness D-Day" - "Eyewitness Vietnam" traces the history of America's longest war, illuminating its causes, battles, and aftereffects, its unfolding and unraveling. Accompanied by maps and nearly 250 photographs - many seen here for the first time - each chapter highlights a specific operation and special feature of the fighting, from the Viet Cong's guerrilla tactics to the MIA issue. And, just as in the bestselling "Eyewitness D-Day", numerous interviews with first-hand participants, both American and Vietnamese, present a compelling, intimate, and deeply personal view of this tumultuous time.
