Product Details

Praise

* “In his customary well-honed prose, Freedman presents a coherent overview of the Vietnam War . . . Will be useful to serious students of the era . . . Along with being more readable than the plethora of assignment titles on the subject, this is a clear-eyed view of a watershed event in U.S. history and a significant update to older histories for middle graders.”School Library Journal, Starred Review

* “Solid history that doesn’t shy away from difficult truths and important moral and political lessons.”—Kirkus Reviews, Starred Review

* “In an excellent study of the Vietnam War that examines the conflict and its aftermath from multiple angles, Freedman (We Will Not Be Silent) again tackles a complex historical event and breaks it down into an accessible account for young readers. . . . Graphic photographs provide an up-close look at the war and the protests surrounding it. The author concludes with a poignant observation about the legacy of the war: a humbling reminder of the limits of power.”—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
