About the Author:


Phillip B. Davidson, a retired Army lieutenant general, not only spent two years in Vietnam as the chief intelligence officer to Generals Westmoreland and Abrams, but prior to that was Assistant Professor of Military History at West Point. The editors of Encyclopedia Britannica have recently commissioned him to rewrite their entry on the Vietnam War.

From Library Journal:

An outstanding operational history of three Indochina warsthe French, 1946-54, the American, 1964-72, and the Vietnamese, 1973-75this is also a presentation of the orthodox U.S. military perspective on the war. Davidson was chief of military intelligence in Vietnam from 1967 to 1969. Davidson blames U.S. defeat on its failure to utilize its military superiority to end the war quickly; on the steady erosion of America's will; and on the continuing inefficiency of South Vietnam's government and armed forces. Ultimately, however, his work is a story of North Vietnam's strategic victory. This deserves to be widely read as a counterpoint to Stanley Karnow's Vietnam: a history ( LJ 10/1/83) and Harry Summers, Jr.'s On Strategy (GPO, 1981).
