Vietnam: An Epic Tragedy, 1945-1975
by Max Hastings
- Vietnam & Korea, Best of 2018, For Him
Three decades in hell
Vietnam was the Western world’s most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Max Hastings has spent the past three years interviewing participants on both sides, and researching American and Vietnamese sources, to create an epic narrative of an epic struggle.
Here is firsthand testimony from Vietcong guerrillas, Southern paratroopers, Saigon bargirls, and Hanoi students, alongside accounts from a multitude of American servicemen. No past volume has so seamlessly blended political and military narrative with heart-stopping personal experiences.
In Hastings’s masterful hands, the conflict in Vietnam unfolds in equally panoramic and human proportions.
