Young, Marilyn B., Fitzgerald, John J., Grunfeld, A. Tom


Even today, so long after peace has been established, memories of the Vietnam War continue to haunt many Americans and Vietnamese, soldiers and civilians alike. Through declassified "For Eyes Only" documents, speeches, photographs, and other first-person, original sources, The Vietnam War: A History in Documents captures the emotion and highly charged politics of the time, tracing the route by which the United States became involved in a war on the other side of the world. The Vietnam War includes riveting transcripts of conversations with Presidents Lyndon Johnson and Richard Nixon; commentary from newspapers, magazines, and television; stirring speeches by Ho Chi Minh and Reverend Martin Luther King Jr.; popular songs; moving memoirs (including one by co-author John J. Fitzgerald); interviews with veterans detailing some of the war's atrocities; and poetry by both Americans and Vietnamese. Evocative photographs illustrate the experience of war from all sides of the conflict: North Vietnamese, South Vietnamese, and American; civilian and military. A picture essay, "Selling Patriotism," shows how posters, drawings, and photographs were used by everyone -- from advertisers to activists -- to influence public opinion about the war. The Vietnam War is an essential one-volume resource for understanding the issues around one of the most divisive episodes in modern history and the subsequent course of American foreign policy. Book jacket.Young, Marilyn B. is the author of 'Vietnam War A History in Documents', published 2003 under ISBN 9780195166354 and ISBN 0195166353.
