"Prados has given us a great gift - a fresh, original, and fascinating synthesis of a long and complicated war by one of the nation's foremost experts." Christian G. Appy, author of Patriots: The Vietnam War Remembered from All Sides "A monumental work of passionately engaged scholarship, written in an easy, conversational style. There is no other history of the war quite like it." Marilyn B. Young, author of The Vietnam Wars, 1945-1990 "Should be read by the lawmakers and opinion leaders who habitually babble on about the 'lessons of the Vietnam War.'" Ronald Spector, author of After Tet: The Bloodiest Year in Vietnam "An awe-inspiring achievement in epic form." Lloyd Gardner, author of Pay Any Price and The Long Road to Baghdad"
