While most books about the Vietnam War focus on the American experience and conclude with South Vietnam's collapse in 1975, The Fall of Vietnam tells a more complete story. Postwar Vietnam is also fully examined, including the Communist takeover of power, Boat People exodus and invasion of Cambodia.
