Product Details


“A sweeping, richly illustrated narrative of a conflict fast retreating in memory… As they have done in numerous collaborations, Ward and Burns take a vast topic and personalize it… Of particular value is the inclusion of Vietnamese voices on both sides of the conflict, most of whom agree more than four decades later that the question of who won or lost is less important than the fact that no one really prevailed… The text is accompanied by more than 500 photographs, some of them immediately recognizable…many others fresh… Accompanying the PBS series to be aired in September 2017, this is an outstanding, indispensable survey of the Vietnam War.”
 Kirkus, (starred review)
“Lucid, flowing, and dramatic… Robustly detailed writing… Eye-opening… Powerful in its own right… In their new ‘intimate’ yet capacious history, the award-winning, audience-enthralling duo of historian and screenwriter Ward and documentarian extraordinaire Burns investigate the complex, divisive, and tragic Vietnam War from a unique plurality of perspectives… This is a vivid, affecting, definitive, and essential illustrated history.”
—Donna Seaman, Booklist (starred review)
