9780091910129: Vietnam: The Definitive Oral History, Told From All Sides

In Vietnam, Professor, Christian G. Appy has created a staggering and monumental oral history of the type that is created only once in a generation. The vivid accounts of 135 men and women span the entire history of the Vietnam conflict from its murky origins in the 1940s to the chaotic fall of Saigon in 1975.

The testimony in this book, sometimes detached and reflective, often raw and emotional, allows us to see and feel what this war meant to people on all sides - Americans and Vietnamese, generals and guerillas, policy makers and protesters, CIA operatives, pilots and doctors, artists and journalists, and a variety of ordinary citizens whose lives were swept up in a cataclysm that killed three million people.

A remarkable, eye-opening and essential read for anyone with even a passing interest in one of the 20th century's defining conflicts.

Review:

"Defintive, profound and utterly relevant" ( Daily Telegraph)

"The most fascinating collection of memories - some of them extremely painful - that I have read in a long time" ( Scottish Sunday Herald)

"No conventional account could begin to evoke the raw reality of Vietnam as vividly as this ambitious oral history" ( Scotsman)

"An exemplary oral history ... profoundly moving as well as informative" ( BBC History)

From the Publisher:

The definitive oral history of the Vietnam Conflict featuring civilians, soldiers, protesters, journalists, survivors, exiles and refugees from all sides.
