Hubert, Kentucky, your loony-left rhetoric rant is at least as political partisan paranoid as the one you are attacking, and a hell of a lot less substantiated. Where would one start with you, feral radicalism and intellectual laziness for starters..I'm actually in a way cheered that there are so many retro 60s throw-backs appearing suddenly since Invasion Iraq, I LOVED the 60s, especially the flower-power and psychadelic music...the downer is when some idiots make it through to the 21st century with all the drawbacks and none of the great music and love of all kinds. I like the book, btw, I admit I didnt even pick up on the issues in the negative review below, but I read it in the 80s, I think, I had different views. I probably sounded something like Hubert, especially after some Scotch and Coke. Which is scary. I didnt pick up on all these negatives such as the stuff about Ho, but that reviewer sounds like he has some idea of what he speaks. You could do worse than this book, I especially liked the anecdotes by Green Beret Mr Christian.

is bollock one of these neo-cons we hear so much of? right wing imbeciles who see threats to mum and apple pie everywhere? haha he maligns a journalist because he's not going along with seemingly every other journalist in america these days, supporting a war on anyone not a friend or puppet to the states. two words: fox news. i bet bollock loves that. all right-wing opinion and very few actual facts. i bet you read that book with a red pen didn't you? and a handgun under your bed. sheesh, what a loon.
Very Thorough Read

The Ten Thousand Day War is the best book on the subject I have ever read. As a student who already knew a good bit about the war, it deepened my knowledge, particulary in the French war in Indochina and America's involvement in it. The book is definitely fascinating and was written after the war ended, giving it a retrospective feel. The book is not extremely long but gives you all the information you will need to fully understand why French and American troops fought and died in a country that most people couldnt find on a map and why it is still a huge controversy to this day. Also, the book doesnt shove opinions down your throat, it is a history of the war and allows you to see the war from different viewpoints with reference to many of the important figures of the war. An excellent read that cuts through the controversy with the facts.
