More than forty years have passed since the end of the Vietnam War, but its ghosts remain. In this magisterial work, historian Geoffrey C. Ward and filmmaker Ken Burns have crafted a fresh and insightful account of the long and brutal conflict that reunited Vietnam while dividing the United States as nothing else had since the Civil War. From the Gulf of Tonkin and the Tet Offensive to Hamburger Hill and the fall of Saigon, Ward and Burns trace the conflict that dogged three American presidents and their advisers, also interweaving almost a hundred voices from those who fought on both sides of the war, as well as those who fought against it—willing for the first time to share their memories of Vietnam as it really was. A unique tour de force, The Vietnam War is an intimate history of America’s least-understood conflict.
