I have read quite a few books on the vietnam conflict & was looking for a book which explained a bit more as to why america became involved in vietnam. This book explains every thing that happened from the lead up of the war to the very end. It is a study book, but great for just wanting to have a better understanding of the political, moral, military aspect of the war.

The best book I have ever read concerning the Vietnam war. The layout made it very easy reading and easy to make notes from. I used this book as the basis of my A-Level unit on the war in Vietnam and this book helped me achieve an A grade. Well worth the read!!!

I used these books for my A levels in Fascism & Nazism. So I will happily recommend any of these to anyone.
They're layout is suitable for A level and above really with all the depth of knowledge you'd require for both the coursework and exam sections of the modules.
This particular Access to History is very big (nearly an inch in width) compared to my other books I have, this one is the heartiest.
However, as per usual, loads of information and the sections along the side are great as revision activities and/or exercises to test your own knowledge.

I am currently using this book as part of my GCSE course and have found it so far to be a necessary point of reference. Information is clearly laid out for easy reference but this book contains a level of detail unseen in many other textbooks.
The content of this book not only makes it suitable for school use, but also for the general reader wishing to learn more about Vietnam, how america got involved and why they didn't win.

This book is well written, informative and very useful for anyone doing A-level history. It's relatively interesting in contrast to most textbooks and is highly accessible. Sets a standard for all history textbooks. Particularly helpful if your history teacher is incompetent!

The summary diagrams are a good source of revision and it is broken up in a useful way.

the book was recommended by school so it does the job but the book has a tendancy to be to "wordy" so it is often harder to actually revise from the book as it has to be reduced in order to revise from it. If your looking for a textbook then 5*'s but personally for me I do not believe it fits my needs completely as a student in accordance to some of the other material I have since viewed.
