9780004725406: Unheralded Victory: Who Won the Vietnam War?

An original military history, Unheralded Victory echoes some themes revisited in NATO’s war on Serbia: how what gets reported can be more important than the events on the ground – especially if the frontline is a very dangerous place for a film crew.

Unheralded Victory is a revisionist history of the Vietnam war, charting the defeat of the Viet Cong. It investigates why the popular image of the war then, as now, is that propagated by Hanoi’s propoganda machine, and why US propaganda was so clumsy. Many myths are debunked: drug use among forces, ‘fragging’, US morale: the author’s account squares with the recollection of actual veterans. He also exposes a number of ‘eyewitnesses’, some active in the veterans’ organizations who were never in Vietnam and whose false testimony has contributed to enduring myth of the ‘crazed ‘Nam veteran’ as portrayed in cinema and TV.

From the Author:

The truth behind the Vietnam War
I wanted to tell the real story about the American and Australian conduct of the war in Vietnam. I wanted to set the record straight and maybe help undo some of those various myths and falsehoods that have characterised most histories - and the popular memory - of that conflict. Unheralded Victory is the result and i have been delighted by the response. Veterans and military people have hailed it as 'the truth at last.' The general public and non-military book reviewers, after their initial incredulity (the Communists lost???!!) have been equally enthusiastic about it. Maybe the veterans of those actions against the Viet Cong and the North Vietnamese Army will now get the long-overdue credit and respect they earned.
