In an acclaimed retelling of the Vietnam tragedy, Max Hastings will offer a balanced account of how and why the Vietnam War unfolded as it did, and a gripping description of what it was like to take part, based on the testimony of scores of participants – communist and anti-communist Vietnamese, Chinese railway engineers, Soviet missile crews, American soldiers, movie stars – whose experiences extended far beyond the battlefields.
