Synopsis: The political and military struggles in Vietnam consumed the resources of both the East and the West. Once the United States committed its armed forces in 1965 to defend South Vietnam's independence, the conflict took on epic dimensions. The Vietnam War marked the largest commitment of American combat forces since World War II and became the longest war in US history. This remarkable collection of human stories from all sides of the conflict charts the war from its opening stages to the dramatic evacuation of Saigon in April 1975. Compiled from hundreds of interviews with veterans and eye-witnesses, and including rare archival photographs, it provides a unique insight into the most socially and politically divisive war of recent times.

About the Author: Dr Richard Burks Verrone and Dr Laura M Calkins are Oral Historians at The Vietnam Project, Texas Tech University, USA, recording interviews with hundreds of veterans, civilians, and family members. Both are also actively archiving original materials from the Vietnam era as well as lecturing and writing on the topic of the war and its significance. They also regularly attend reunions and conferences of veterans associations and have made several visits to Vietnam and the terrain in which the war was fought. Dr Verrone has lived and taught in Vietnam, and holds a doctorate in history from Texas Tech University. Dr Calkins holds a doctorate in history from the School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London. Both have held Fulbright Scholarships to advance their studies of the Vietnam conflict and of South East Asia, and live in Texas, USA.
