History for busy people. Listen to a concise history of the Vietnam War in just one hour.
War, what is it good for? The Vietnam War: History In an Hour gives a gripping account of the most important Cold War-era conflict, fought between the United States and the Viet Cong, the Vietnam People's Army and their Communist allies. It was one of the most traumatic military conflicts America has ever been involved in – and provoked a backlash of anti-war protests at home.
Here are the key events leading up to the Vietnam War, the deadly guerrilla warfare of the Viet Cong, the domestic anti-war movement, and the fall of Saigon. The Vietnam War: History In an Hour is essential listening for anyone interested in post-war history.

"If the past is a foreign country, History in an Hour is like a high-class tour operator, offering delightfully enjoyable short breaks in the rich and diverse continent of our shared past." (Dominic Sandbrook)
"The practice of History is ever-evolving, and the History In An Hour idea brings it back up to date for the digital age." (Andrew Roberts, Bookseller)
"This is genius." (MacWorld.com)
Pretty much what I expected. Liberal perspective on Vietnam. Basically gives a negative spin on everything the US did. Get The Politically Incorrect Guide To Vietnam instead.
I have not fought in Vietnam (and thank God for that!), but nevertheless the book reminded me of the turbulent and exciting sixties. (Remember the saying "if you remember the sixties, you weren't really there?")
I found the book to be light, well written, and very informative. I did not find it to be biased as some of the other readers suggested.
Overall, I highly recommend the 'History in an Hour' series. They are light, informative, and well presented. And you can't beat the price!
