From the best-selling author of Catastrophe and All Hell Let Loose comes a masterful chronicle of one of the most devastating international conflicts of the 20th century. Here are the vivid realities of strife amid jungle and paddy fields that killed 2 million people.

Vietnam became the Western world’s most divisive modern conflict, precipitating a battlefield humiliation for France in 1954, then a vastly greater one for the United States in 1975. Following three years of research, Max Hastings combines a political and military narrative of the entire conflict with heartstopping personal experiences, including testimony from warlords and peasants, statesmen and soldiers, to create an epic narrative of an epic struggle, in his biggest history book to date.
