The Vietnam War
The passage of more than two decades between the end of the Vietnam War and now is enough time for us to have gained perspective about the war and to judge the process and outcome of the war with proper objectivity. This book focuses primarily on the various aspects of the Vietnamese Communists' political, military, diplomatic, and other behaviors during the Vietnam War (also known as the Second Indochina War), coupled with an assessment of the meaning of their victory. For the purpose of achieving comprehensiveness and symmetrical balance in understanding the war, the American, Chinese, and Soviet dimensions of the war are also dealt with, insofar as they are relevant to the main focus of the book.
