    This is the definitive story of one of the longest and most controversial conflicts in US history.

    Created in association with the Smithsonian Institution, this authoritative history of the Vietnam War examines the key figures and events of the conflict and its lasting effects on the world. This history book for adults combines compelling text with maps and archive photography, A Short History of the Vietnam War is an all-encompassing showcase of every aspect of the fighting and the wider political landscape, from the struggle for civil rights to the treatment of prisoners.

    Inside the pages of this retelling of America's bloodiest conflict, you'll discover:

    - Vivid, moving, and informative details of the Vietnam war, including eyewitness accounts and iconic photographs
    - A clear and compelling account of the conflict, in short, self-contained events from the Battle of Ia Drang to the Tet Offensive and The Khmer Rouge
    - Biography spreads highlighting major military and political figures
    - Features on everyday life in the war offering additional context
    - Stunning image spreads displaying weapons, spy gear, and other equipment that defined the war
    - Maps and feature boxes provide additional information on major events during the conflict


    Detailed descriptions of events, from Operation Passage to Freedom to the evacuation of the US embassy in Saigon, are brought to life with eyewitness accounts and iconic photographs. Gallery pages present collections of infantry weapons, artillery, aircraft, and armoured vehicles, while diagrams and maps show exactly how battles and decisive moments unfolded, and biographical entries provide essential insight into the roles of significant individuals from Henry Kissinger to General Thieu.

    The perfect read for the military history enthusiast, A Short History of the Vietnam War is a stirring visual record of the suffering, sacrifice, and heroism that occurred in America's bloodiest ever conflicts.
