Publisher's Summary

The mainstream media and history books would have you believe that the Vietnam War was tragic and a dismal failure. But Phillip Jennings is here to set the record straight, about one of the bright spots in U.S. military history. In this latest Politically Incorrect Guide, Jennings shatters culturally accepted myths and busts politically incorrect lies that liberal pundits and leftist professors have been telling you for years.

The Vietnam War was the most important—and successful—campaign to defeat Communism. Without the sacrifices made and the courage displayed by our military, the world might be a different place. The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Vietnam War reveals the truth about the battles, players, and policies of one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history.

Critic Reviews

“Captain Jennings walks us through this tragic struggle, the war America never lost, but wasn’t allowed to win, either.” (L. Brent Bozell III, President, Media Research Center)

Finally, someone gets it right.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Politically Incorrect Guide to the Vietnam War to be better than the print version?

Both are fine.

What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

As a veteran from that era, I am acutely aware of the lies and political spin surrounding the war. Few authors would have tackled the topic, understanding the culture of disinformation surrounding it. From what I personally knew, the data presented was far more accurate than the standard fare now available.

What does Tom Weiner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Understanding and emotion.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The Tet offensive.

Exceptional!!

This provides some very very interesting facts about the Vietnam war and exposes many of the myths about the war that are popular and believe by so many that were misinformed.
