Sergio Miller's account of the Vietnam War reaches its second volume.

In this second volume of Sergio Miller’s epic treatment of the Vietnam War, the American combat troops have arrived and the year is 1965. By 1967 it wasn’t going well, and Miller reveals how Washington analysts relied on poor quality data from the field to fight the PR battle at home. Then the Tet Offensive of 1968 happened and the Americans were pushed to the limit. What’s fascinating is the contrast between the soldiers and their stories in the hellish jungles and the politically driven strategy of the administration at home. By 1973 it was obvious that it was all over, yet the politicians were scrabbling to put a gloss on the withdrawal while the soldiers pointlessly fought on.

With photo plate sections and a wealth of detail, this is the story of the Vietnam War from the paddy fields to Washington. An excellent read.
