Description - The Vietnam War: The Definitive Illustrated History by DK
A authoritative visual record of the suffering, sacrifice, and heroism during this long and bloody conflict
Tells the story of one of the longest and most controversial conflicts in US history.
More than 50 years after the outbreak of the world's first televised war, the conduct and strategies employed against the inferior technology of the Viet Cong remain as controversial and fascinating as ever.
Created in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this history of the Vietnam War examines both the conflict and its lasting impact in riveting detail. Combining compelling text with maps and archive photography, The Vietnam War showcases every aspect of the fighting and the wider political landscape.
Eyewitness accounts and iconic photographs bring events to life, from Operation Passage to Freedom to the evacuation of the US embassy in Saigon. Collections of weapons, aircraft, and armored vehicles are presented on detailed gallery pages, while diagrams and maps show exactly how decisive moments unfolded, and biographical entries give insight into key figures involved on both sides of the conflict.
The perfect read for the military history enthusiast, The Vietnam War is a stirring visual record of the suffering and heroism that occurred in America's bloodiest ever conflict.
