"While most historians of the Vietnam War focus on the origins of U.S. involvement and the Americanization of the conflict, Lien-Hang T. Nguyen examines the international context in which North Vietnamese leaders pursued the war and American intervention ended. This riveting narrative takes the reader from the marshy swamps of the Mekong Delta to the bomb-saturated Red River Delta, from the corridors of power in Hanoi and Saigon to the Nixon White House, and from the peace negotiations in Paris to high-level meetings in Beijing and Moscow, all to reveal that peace never had a chance in Vietnam."--Publisher's description.

“Too often.... the Vietnam War is still viewed solely through the American lens. Leaders in Washington, U.S. soldiers on the battlefront, and American protestors on the streets take center stage while the Vietnamese disappear in the background, part of the terrain in which Americans became quagmired. However, the war was at least as much a Vietnamese conflict as it was an American one. Viewing the conflict from the perspectives of leaders in Hanoi, a new international history of the Vietnam War, and indeed of the wider Cold War, emerges.”
