Summary
  • Presents the Vietnam War as a series of missteps, misunderstandings, and mistakes by leaders including Defense Secretary Robert McNamara and the heads of the CIA, and explains the origins of those errors
  • "Twenty-five years after its end, with many records and archives newly opened and many participants now willing to testify, historian and journalist A. J. Langguth has written an authoritative, news-making account of the Vietnam War from both the American and Vietnamese perspectives." "Our Vietnam is a history of the Vietnam War as it was lived by U.S. presidents in Washington and Communist leaders in Hanoi, by American Marines at Khe Sanh and war protesters at home, by Vietcong guerrillas in the Mekong Delta and South Vietnamese troops in the Central Highlands." "Our Vietnam brings together the kaleidoscopic events and personalities of the war - the assassinations and battles, the strategists and soldiers, the reporters and protesters - into one engrossing and unforgettable narrative."--BOOK JACKET
