The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Vietnam War (Google eBook)
The Vietnam War was a tragic and dismal failure—at least that is what the mainstream media and history books would have you believe. Yet, Phillip Jennings sets the record straight in The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War. In this latest “P.I.G.”, Jennings shatters culturally-accepted myths and busts politically incorrect lies that liberal pundits and leftist professors have been telling you for years. Bet you didn’t know that:
The U.S. did not lose the Vietnam War—we won it
The U.S. achieved our goal—we stopped the spread of Communism
The U.S. did not suffer significant battlefield losses
The cultural chaos of the 1960s and 1970s negatively influenced the Vietnam War—not vice versaThe Vietnam War was the most important—and successful—campaign to defeat Communism. Without the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by our military, the world might be a different place. The Politically Incorrect Guide™ to the Vietnam War proves the above and more as Jennings reveals the truth about the battles, players, and policies of one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history.

I got this book as a Christmas present for my father-in-law, a retired Marine major that served in VietNam. I read half of it before wrapping it, and he started reading it before he opened his other ... Read full review
I found this book interesting, but disagree with a lot of it. It is completely biased, resorts to regular insults against those who don't share the author's views, and is chronogically chaotic. I think in order to correctly comment on a major event, you should interview and research both sides equally, and in depth. This book lacks this - it relies on criticising news reports and assuming that sentiment is equal to fact. The most important issue that the author ignores is whether the US government had an ethical right to interfere in a civil dispute in a foreign country. How different would it be for Iran to highjack a US presidential election? He makes clear that the US military had no moral responsibility for anything it did in Vietnam. Better to spend your money on decent scholarship.
