The Vietnam War transports you back to a time when the United States become involved in a war in Vietnam, and lets you experience the drama for yourself. Learn about the road to war, and the men and women involved in this controversial conflict.

Packed with first-hand accounts including interviews, official speeches, poems and letters, Lost Words lets you experience the past through the words of the people who helped make history. Powerful and insightful, the Lost Words series provides an intimate perspective on life through a difficult period in history. Combining popular culture excerpts with primary-source material such as interviews with people who were actually there, official enquiries into events and letters to friends and relatives, these books offer a first-hand account of life during history's hardest times.
