This volume derives from an unprecedented seminar held at Columbia University's School of International and Public Affairs in November 1990. At the seminar, leading Western diplomatic and military historians and Vietnam scholars met with prominent Vietnamese Communists to reflect on the Vietnam War. The book contains four parts: The Vietnamese Revolution and Political/Military strategy; the war from the American side; the war in the South and Cambodia; and retrospective and postwar issues. In addition to Jane Werner and Luu Doan Huynh, the contributors are Mark Bradley, William Duiker, David Elliott, Christine White, George Vickers, James Harrison, George Herring, Ronald Spector, Paul Joseph, Jeffrey Clarke, Ngo Vinh Long, Benedict Kiernan, Marilyn Young, Keith Taylor, and Tran Van Tra. General Tra was Commander of the People's Liberation Armed Forces of South Vietnam from 1963 to 1975. His eye-opening analysis of the Tet Offensive has never before been available in English.

Paperback      ISBN: 1591147387
Kiley and Rochester, both affiliated with the Historical Office of the Office of the Secretary of Defense, provide a balanced and authoritative account of the fate of the nearly 800 American servicemen captured during the Vietnam War. They draw on previously unreleased materials, and interviews with more than 100 former POWs, to meticulously reconstruct a narrative of this chapter of the war. Their analysis of the shifting tactics and temperaments of both captive and captor as the war evolved weaves domestic political developments and battlefield action with prison scenes that alternate between Hanoi's concrete cells, jungle stockades, and mountain camps. Many b&w historical photos are included. First published in 1999, the book remains a powerful portrait of how men cope under horrific conditions.
