Marigold presents the first rigorously documented, in-depth story of one of the Vietnam War's last great mysteries: the secret Polish-Italian peace initiative, codenamed "Marigold," that sought to end the war, or at least to open direct talks between Washington and Hanoi, in 1966.

- Lexington Books 2011; US$ 84.50
This book explores how America's national leadership, mesmerized by the mythology of monolithic communism, failed the American people.

- NYU Press 2007; US$ 49.00
It is hard to determine what dominated more newspaper headlines in America during the 1960s and early ‘70s: the Vietnam War or America’s turbulent racial climate. Oddly, however, these two pivotal moments are rarely examined in tandem. John Darrell Sherwood has mined the archives of the U.S. Navy and conducted scores of interviews with... more...

At the height of the Vietnam War, thousands of Americans wrote moving letters to Dr. Benjamin Spock, America’s pediatrician and a high-profile opponent of the war.

- NYU Press 1999; US$ 75.00
The anti-Vietnam War movement in the United States is perhaps best remembered for its young, counterculture student protesters. However, the Vietnam War was the first conflict in American history in which a substantial number of military personnel actively protested the war while it was in progress. In The Turning , Andrew Hunt reclaims the history... more...
- The University of North Carolina Press 1993; US$ 28.95
"Reminds us of the disturbing truth that some 80 percent of the 2.5 million enlisted men who served in Vietnam--out of 27 million men who reached draft age during the war--came from working-class and impoverished backgrounds. . . . Deals especially well with the apparent paradox that the working-class soldiers' families back home mainly opposed the... more...
- Regnery Publishing 2010; US$ 19.95
The Vietnam War was a tragic and dismal failure?at least that is what the mainstream media and history books would have you believe. Yet, Phillip Jennings sets the record straight in The Politically Incorrect Guide? to the Vietnam War . In this latest ?P.I.G.?, Jennings shatters culturally-accepted myths and busts politically incorrect lies that... more...
- Encounter Books 2012; US$ 17.99
Most of what Americans have heard about the Tet Offensive is wrong. The brief battles in early 1968 during the Vietnam conflict marked the dividing line between gradual progress toward possible victory and slow descent to a humiliating defeat. That the enemy was handily defeated on the ground was considered immaterial; that it could mount attacks... more...
- Osprey Publishing 2012; US$ 14.95
Osprey's examination of airborne units of the Vietnam War (1955-1975). The Airborne units that fought against the Viet Cong in Vietnam were a select brotherhood.
