Review: The Vietnam War (Seminar Studies in History)

User Review  - Sven Journal - Goodreads

It barely scraped the surface. I was hoping for a more detailed book about the actual condition of the population of both Vietnam North and South. I feel like this book was very partial in favor of americans, without giving a voice to the counterparts of the North and the South. Read full review
