Most helpful customer reviews on Amazon.com
You should be aware that it's not really written for a general audience. It's dense, intellectual, and lengthy, but you'll leave with an understanding of what the Vietnamese Communists did and why they did it that you just will not get from even the best of the general histories of the Vietnam War.
This book avoids spin and tells the actual events that led from Colonial suffering to revolution and beyond.
Any fan of Duiker should really give this book a read - enthralling.
