This landmark study of the Vietnamese conflict, examined through the lens of the revolutionary and counter-revolutionary movements in the rural province of Long An up until American intervention in the area, offers a human, balanced, penetrating account of war. Two new forewords by Robert K. Brigham of Vassar College and Jeffrey Record of the Air War College explore the book's enduring influence. A new end chapter offers previously unpublished scholarship on the conflict.

About the Author:

Jeffrey Race, living in Asia since 1965, is a retired American military officer, a consultant to private firms and public bodies, and volunteer with many international charities.

Review:

“Timeless.” (Asia Times 2010-10-23)

“The work’s success in bringing clarity to its analysis of that attack owes much to its long neglected social science, to Jeffrey Race.” (New Mandala ; Thailand-Laos-Cambodia Group 2011-04-30)

“I’ve gotten more out of re-reading War Comes to Long An . . . than just about anything other than Robert Warburton’s classic memoir, Eighteen Years in the Khyber, 1879–98 (1900).” (The American Interest 2009-07-01)
