Summary

Explora la fascinante historia de la guerra de Vietnam.

La Guerra de Vietnam representó un hito no solo en la historia estadounidense y vietnamita, sino también a nivel internacional. No fue solo una batalla entre dos naciones, sino entre dos ideologías, dos estrategias militares y una lucha por los corazones y las mentes de dos poblaciones nacionales muy diferentes.

Pocos conflictos en la historia global simbolizan tanto como Vietnam. Desde la movilización por los derechos civiles hasta el papel de los medios en la guerra, la Guerra de Vietnam fue única en el sentido de que no podía considerarse solo como un asunto militar, sino que trascendió a todas las áreas de la sociedad vietnamita y estadounidense. La palabra Vietnam describe una era de la historia, no solo una guerra aislada en una pequeña nación en el Sudeste Asiático. Es la lente a través de la cual la América y el Vietnam de hoy deben ser interpretados. Pocos conflictos han dado forma o darán forma al mundo tanto como lo hizo la Guerra de Vietnam.

Algunos de los temas y preguntas que se tratan en este audiolibro incluyen:

  • Los franceses y la Primera Guerra de Indochina

What happened behind the Vietnam war.

As far as the information went it was good. It needed to cover the politics behind why and how LBJ and Kissinger manipulated the war for politics. They did not fight the war to win.

This is an awesome Audio Book.....

We listened to book on our way to LA. It made a boring mundane trip go by very quickly. The audio book covers a lot of detail about the war....and it's not all good news. But learning about what occurred during that time is pretty eye opening and captivating.

Amazing book on Vietnam War.

This is an excellent chronicle of the war. We as responsible citizens must take this bitter pill to heart. I sincerely hope we, as a Nation of Priciple, are not continuing down a similar path at this time.

The Vietnam War (not good to remember)

This is an amazing series. The author team of Captivating History is a true Master, when it comes to documenting American history. Well worth listening and learning.

Well written and thought provoking.

The book provided an outstanding coverage of the political environment before and after the US direct involvement. It was a little lean on tactical coverage of military activity although there are other books that cover troop activity and movement. I felt like it was a balanced coverage whether or not US combat troops should have been deployed.

Learned a lot...

I learned a lot that was far beyond my personal experience. Personally I would have liked more on the war’s legacy but one cannot have everything and what one does have here is a superb one-volume history of the war which is much more substantial than the coffee-table book which it appears to be at first sight.

This will make a great reference book.

It was long overdue. Intimate in the sub-title is right on. This (my) country will never really care to remember the war until we (the veterans) are long gone. This will make a great reference book for generations.

It was hard time for all of us.

To comprehend, and the author is there saying to kill our men (American soldiers) as they are murders, as if they weren't there selves, reminds why i hate this woman so bad, we can trade her for the author who opened a lot of channels for us but jane closed a lot of doors for us mm Augusta Maine.

Essential reference work.

Companion to the excellent documentary series by Ken Burns. Illuminating, tragic account of an important period of U.S. and Vietnamese histories. Burns takes advantage of access to new documents and film from the period. Relevant today and tomorrow.

I would highly recommend the book,

My only complaint was that the role of the Army infantry was minimized. I would highly recommend the book, especially to the generations post Vietnam.
