My rating: 5 of 5 stars
A tough read—there were atrocities and heroes, sages and fools on all sides. If you have done any significant reading/research, you will not learn anything dramatically new here–but the stories and then overall perspective from this distance all make this a worthy read. For those to whom this is all new, a must read. We are who we are today in the US and in Vietnam because of this war–for better or ill.
