Summary

Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour. 
‘War, what is it good for?’ THE VIETNAM WAR: HISTORY IN AN HOUR gives a gripping account of the most important Cold War-era conflict, fought between the United States and the Viet Cong, the Vietnam People’s Army and their Communist allies. It was one of the most traumatic military conflicts America has ever been involved in – and provoked a backlash of anti-war protests at home. 
Here are the key events leading up to the Vietnam War, the deadly guerrilla warfare of the Viet Cong, the domestic anti-war movement and the fall of Saigon. THE VIETNAM WAR: HISTORY IN AN HOUR is essential reading for anyone interested in post-war history. 
Love history? Know your stuff with History in an Hour… 
Neil Smith's best work yet, The Vietnam War is a concise yet comprehensive exploration of one of America's most controversial conflicts. This short, top-rated book is a testament to Smith's ability to distil complex historical events into an engaging narrative. 
For fans of David Harvey (A Companion to Marx's Grundrisse), Karl Marx (Manifesto of the Communist Party or The Communist Manifesto), Mark Fisher (How to Write About Theatre), and Rupert Colley (Hitler).
