Review:

Samuel G. Freedman

"Newsday"

The towering work of nonfiction this year....Maraniss'

great achievement is to be epic and intimate at the same time.



"The New York Times Book Review"

Maraniss...is a writer with a masterly sense of narrative pace....The tale unfolds with a magisterial sweep that recaptures the war and its era.



Maureen Corrigan

"Fresh Air," National Public Radio

My nominee for must-read nonfiction book of the year...."They Marched Into Sunlight" is that miraculous thing, a substantive,

exhaustively researched work of history that reads like a novel.



"The Economist"

A masterful work that brings the conflict back with a rush of cinema verite emotion and tension....Over the years, Vietnam has produced several classics, all of them different: "Dispatches," by Michael Herr, and "A Bright Shining Lie," by Neil Sheehan. Here is another.
