I learned so much about Vietnam reading this book. It really made think about the tremendous human cost on both sides of the war. I visited Vietnam after reading the book and really had a different perspective about the people and their determination.

Its very interesting, however, it is a lot like required reading and of course your professor wrote the book. Although the main points are repeated several times throughout, the fact that remember that era from the 10th grade on, made it easier for me to follow. I must say I really enjoyed the book. Right or wrong, I served in country.

I am an expat, currently living in Vietnam, and this book was really an eye opener for me. The author makes clarifies a lot about the culture, and specifically the differences (and similarities!) between the various regions in Vietnam. It is by no means a recent book, but I find that the cultural divisions FitzGerald presents are still so present...

Good information about various aspects of the war and its origins. But a little lopsided as if the US was the stupid bad guy. In other words not written neutral.

Tremendous! A must read if you have any interest in Vietnam, it's history, and how the U.S. got involved and was involved.

An indepth, extremely readable and absorbing book about Vietnamese culture, and the circumstances that helped a small country with a shrewd cadre of fighters to overcome the might of the U.S. Once you read this you begin to see how horribly detrimental the lies our government told the public for years helped continue a senseless killing of thousands of young lives. The U.S. was wrong, dead wrong, in every single way in its tactics fighting this war. It was unwinnable.

A long and agonizing read but worth every hour since I now understand far more about Vietnam history and culture and appreciate what the US stumbled into and why it did not work out as we planned.
