Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "This title in the America's Wars through Primary Sources, part of series is the publisher's MyReportLinks.com imprint, encourages readers to learn more about the subject using prescreened, linked Internet sites. Excerpts from diaries, letters, interviews, newspaper accounts, songs, speeches, and historical documents offer a solid overview of the Vietnam war from a variety of perspectives, including North Vietnamese civilians and combatants. The text is dry and uninspiring, but the information is organized well and presented in an appealing format. Black-and-white and color photographs and maps are used throughout, and a time line, a glossary, source notes, suggestions for further reading, and an annotated list of the Internet sites linked to the book provide opportunites for students to broaden their understanding. --Ed Sullivan Copyright 2006 Booklist"
