Revisiting Vietnam War
By: A. Budi

What I like about Hasting’s approach to history is that he offers concise and wonderfully detailed analysis of events. I was really drawn to Hastings after reading ARMAGEDDON - The Battle for Germany and RETRIBUTION - The Battle for Japan; I found those two books to be two of best summaries of World War II I’ve ever read. At almost 900 pages, it is fair to say this book is as concise an account one could expect on the subject as complex as the Vietnam War … especially when one factors the time before and after US involvement (which are frequently and mistakenly ignored/forgotten aspects of the war). Unlike wars in the past (the World Wars and Korea), Vietnam had no... See More

definitive front line (with the exception that it was fought in South Vietnam) and the war’s progress cannot easily be explained with a map (until the war’s end, when South Vietnam is no longer on the map).

The nebulous and organic nature of the conflict is a challenge the Hastings embraced. As I was reading, I frequently wondered how tedious the research must have been to cover so much of the minutia presented in this book, but the seemingly insignificant “small” things often prove to be what is needed to get a better understanding of how and why other events unfolded. That Hastings managed to cover a detailed history of the Vietnam War (from the period ousting the French through the South Vietnam’s defeat) in 750 readable pages is somewhat miraculous.
