Vietnam: An Epic History of a Tragic War
Max Hastings ambitiously re-tells the story of the Vietnamese war with the benefit of vivid personal memories: firstly reporting in 1967‚Äď68 from the United States, then through successive assignments in Indochina for newspapers and BBC TV. In his book, he explores a huge range of sources to describe, from both sides, the epic conflict in which between two and three million people (58,000 of them Americans) perished between 1945 and 1975.
Max Hastings is the author of twenty-six books, most of which are about conflict. Between 1986 and 2002 he was also Editor-in-Chief of the¬†Daily Telegraph¬†and then Editor of the¬†Evening Standard.
