"In this their latest illustrated war volume, Donald M. Goldstein, Katherine V. Dillon, and J. Michael Wenger show you the battles, leaders, weapons, heroism, and pain of the Vietnam War, from its earliest beginnings to the fall of Saigon in 1975. Through more than 450 official and personal photographs (both U.S. and Vietnamese), they reveal the anguish, the loneliness, the courage, and the fears of the three and a half million U. S. soldiers, Marines, airmen and seamen who served in America's longest war. Here are Marines battling house to house in Hue; river boats patrolling the Mekong; soldiers dodging sniper fire in elephant grass; fighter-bombers screaming over Hanoi and Haiphong; "The Wall" listing some 58,000 names."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
