Updated and revised, with full-colour maps and new images throughout, this is a concise study of the Vietnam War, the most important event of the "American Century."

The Vietnam War was arguably the most important event of the “American Century.” America entered the conflict certain of its Cold War doctrines and was convinced of its moral mission to save the world from the advance of communism. However, the war was not at all what the United States expected. Outnumbered and outgunned, the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong forces resorted to a guerrilla war based on the theories of Mao Zedong of China, while the US responded with firepower and overwhelming force. The resultant conflict was brutal and prolonged, and its consequences would change America forever, leaving the country battered and unsure as it sought to face the challenges of the final acts of the Cold War. As for Vietnam, the conflict would continue long after the US had exited its military adventure in southeast Asia.
