does anyone know of any good books or websites on the Vietnam War?


last year for school my teacher had me write a report on the Vietnam War and that sparked my interest in it. i only had three books that i was able to pull info from in order to write about it. since then i have looked for more books and have watched a few shows on History Channel about it but im always looking to learn more.

Not sure if you are looking for a good explanation of the political, military or personal stories associated with the VW or just a good overview. One of the best books I ever read was Philip Caputo's A Rumor of War. It fits in the personal story category.

We Were Soldiers by Hal Moore there are others but that one is a must.
