The war in Indochina as seen by those who fought on both sides. This latest addition to The New Press's People's History series offers an incisive account of the war America lost, from the perspective of those who opposed it on both sides of the battlefront as well as on the homefront. The protagonists in Neale's history of the "American War" (as the Vietnamese refer to it) are common people struggling to shape the outcome of events unfolding on an international stage American foot soldiers who increasingly opposed American military policy on the ground in Vietnam, local Vietnamese activists and guerrillas fighting to build a just society, and the American civilians who mobilized to bring the war to a halt. His narrative includes vivid, first-person commentary from the ordinary men and women whose collective actions resulted in the defeat of the world's most powerful military machine. 11 black-and-white photographs.

"Something remarkable and rare a survey of the American War in Vietnam that is lively, accessible, idiosyncratic, opinionated, and rangy." Christian G. Appy, author of "Working Class War: American Combat Soldiers and Vietnam"
