9780072417555: America's Longest War: The United States and Vietnam, 1950-1975

Comprehensive yet concise, America’s Longest War provides a complete and balanced history of the Vietnam War. It is not mainly a military history, but seeks to integrate military, diplomatic, and political factors in order to clarify America’s involvement and ultimate failure in Vietnam. While it focuses on the American side of the equation, it provides sufficient consideration of the Vietnamese side to make the events comprehensible.

From the Publisher:

Widely praised for being a brief, clear and unbiased text.
The third edition of AMERICA'S LONGEST WAR marks a significant revision. This edition seeks to update the history of US involvement in Vietnam.
New research throughout - including information retrieved from recently opened records on the war.
Illustration program has been significantly revised.
The last chapter, "The Post-War and the Legacy of Vietnam", has been substantially rewritten to take into account the dramatic changes of the past decade, analyze the influence that Vietnam continues to excerpt on Americans, and explain the persistence of conflict on the US and Vietnam.
Places the Vietnam War in historical perspective.
Most detailed coverage between the period of 1963-1973, the decade of heaviest American involvement on Vietnam.
