Sir Max Hastings needs little introduction – the best-selling author of
more than twenty books is firmly established as our leading military
historian. Such titles as All Hell Let Loose and Catastrophe set a
benchmark for other historians, and Vietnam promises to do the same for
this most divisive conflict. Sir Max has spent the past three years interviewing
scores of participants on both sides, as well as researching a multitude of American and Vietnamese documents and memoirs, to create an epic narrative of an
epic struggle. Blending a political and military narrative of the entire conflict with heart-stopping personal experiences, this is a history of the Vietnam War for the 21 st Century – an event to be savoured with tea and cake in the atmospheric surrounds of St. Peter’s Church.
