I received this book from Zenith Press as compensation for my review. All these thoughts are my own.
This is the same company who provided Medal of Honor to me a month ago. I was really happy to view this book as well. Much like the last, this book is like a piece of art to my history nerd soul.
This one chronicles our [United States] involvement in the Vietnam war. I don’t know about your education, but all the way up to high school, we never really made it past WWII in our history classes. With my history major, I concentrated on early American history or World War II so again I never really studied the Vietnam war.
Until I met Tom.
This is one of his favorite time periods to study. He finds what was going on with society and with the warfare fascinating. I could not even begin to count how many documentaries I have seen over the years about this war because of his intrigue.
This book is a great one stop shop if you want a quick reference. I really enjoy the social spins that they put into the book. I am a sociology historian at heart my friends. And again the photos they have throughout are fantastic (In a humbling and tragic way).
There is something about looking at history in books that I just find inspiring. I can just dive into those pages and get a good sense of what was. And this one does a superb job peaking my interest.
This is a great book, and I am sure our family will thumb through it’s pages for years. And hey George may even use it for his history classes on down the road. With his parents, he is a history nut in the making.
Ok I can stop talking about my kid being in school now…
You can find the book at Barnes and Noble and Amazon, or you can go here.
