The Vietnam War: Timelines, Facts, and Battles
War isn't new in our world, but the Vietnam War was a new sort of war in many ways. Called by some “the first television war,” it was the first in which video and audio recording played a huge role in getting the story to people back in the United States, bringing home not only the basic news but the enormous toll that war can take. For better and worse, this helped make it one of the most polarizing wars in U.S. history. This intriguing volume provides context to the war's history, while timelines for both the overall book and its chapters help give further details.
