MEDIA REVIEWS
"Rather than alphabetically arranged through the entire volume, the clustering of them by period and event and linked with relevant documents makes the reference more useful for individuals who wish to focus on a particular period or topic. The documents are pertinent. Other features include a listing of the reference entries and documents, a preface and introduction, chronology, a lengthy selected bibliography, and an index. Typical of ABC-CLIO, the publication is colorful and attractive." - ARBA
"This outstanding set is a must-purchase for public, high school, and college libraries, especially those where Ken Burns' recent documentary on the topic was popular." - Booklist
"The organization of this unique, distinct look into one of the most controversial wars in U.S. history is chronological by major periods, from the first French war in the region to the aftermath of North Vietnam's triumph. . . . Overall, the result is well-balanced and informative. Summing Up: Recommended. All public and academic levels/libraries." - Choice
"These helpful and detailed volumes make many areas of the war accessible to browsers and researchers alike. . . . Readable from cover to cover for history buffs and those interested in a detailed discussion of the war, it is also useful for research or information on any particular Vietnam War topic. . . . This resource will be useful to history classes, for assignments on biographies of any of the individuals profiled, and for those interested in general exploration of topics pertaining to the war. . . . Recommended." - School Library Connection
