Description
Though three decades old, the legacy of the 10,000-day war between Vietnam and the United States stills resonates in both countries and for the millions on both sides whose lives were forever touched by the conflict. In defense of the Domino Theory, the United States brought all its considerable military might to bear on a small, largely rural nation half a world away. The US spent $145,000,000 at 1974 prices, her aircraft dropped 8 million tons of bombs, and her armed forces suffered 46,370 fatalities. The North Vietnamese and Viet Cong accounted for 900,000 dead. This illustrated history documents every aspect of the war, from the role of the French, through all major actions, and up to the fall of South Vietnam. The book strives to understand not only the causes, but also the lasting legacy. Over 250 color and b/w photos bring the conflict to life again after all these years have passed.
