The Vietnam War is anything but a forgotten war. Even today, the strategies that led to an unexpected American defeat are hotly debated, and much remains controversial and unclear, which is not surprising given the nature of the combat in which the Vietnamese guerrilla warfare eventually won out over high-tech weaponry. The task of clarifying the issues without oversimplifying this complex war that impacted the world is undertaken by The A to Z of the Vietnam War: first in its chronology, then in its introduction, but mainly in a substantial dictionary section including hundreds of entries on significant persons (military and political), places, events, armed units, battles and lesser engagements, and weapons. And for those seeking further information, an extensive bibliography is included.
Edwin E. Moïse is a Professor of History at Clemson University. He is the author of Historical Dictionary of the Vietnam War and Tonkin Gulf and the Escalation of the Vietnam War.

Editorial Reviews

Moïse (history, Clemson U.) presents a cross-referenced historical dictionary of the Vietnam War that includes entries on significant persons, places, events, armed units, battles, and weapons, as well as important terms. Domestic political opposition to the war is somewhat covered, even if the bulk of the material is focused on the war itself. Before the presentation of the dictionary, Moïse provides a chronology and an introductory essay that gives an overview of the war and considers some enduring historical debates. Also included are a names index and a military operations index.
