Given the biased and distorted antimilitary polemics that emerged from academia during and immediately after the war, Light at the End of the Tunnel is a major improvement. Professor Rotter has made a commendable attempt to provide balance and objectivity with his selection of essays. I hope above all, he says in his preface, that this book will be of use to students, mine and others, who continue to look for answers to their questions about the Vietnam War. That has always been our hope, too. Colonel Harry G. Summers, Jr.

Although it ended more than 20 years ago, the Vietnam War continues to fascinate . This book is essential for anyone who has an interest in truly understanding the Vietnam War. These readings will both.

Although it ended more than 20 years ago, the Vietnam War continues to fascinate Americans. These readings will both educate and entertain students about this turning point in the history of the United States and, indeed, the world.

Andrew Rotter's freshman-friendly twenty-page capsule history of this complex conflict is a godsend to teachers and worth the price of the book all by itself. I didn't think this anthology could get any better, but darned if Rotter hasn't pulled it off.

This book was bought for my senior American History course but I started reading because I was curious about the beginning of the Viet Nam war. Excellent writing by a variety of authors. Book is in excellent condition; shipping was quick.

I teach a college class on the Vietnam War, and I'm only semi-impressed. The variety is good, but some of the readings are not accessible to students because they're not-particularly-well-selected excerpts from larger works, so context gets lost. It would be helpful if the editor had either been more careful in choosing selections that make sense as units or provided short introductions that clarify the context. For example, the My Lai reading by Bilton and Sim would be great, except it begins in a spot where students have no idea what orders the men have received; beginning about three pages earlier in the book would have made everything crystal clear. In some cases, there are much better and clearer essays available (the one on Laos is particularly messy and confusing). Nor would it hurt if the editor had put more work into providing clarifying footnotes for terminology, though this is more easily remedied when teaching.

Also - though this is a minor point - I find it frustrating that the sources for the selections are only listed at the back of the book, instead of either in the TOC or on the first page of each selection.

I do really like the good selection of interpretations of the war and the fact that it covers the long war and the international context. Small tweaks would make this an excellent selection, but now it's only somewhere between OK and good.

This is an excellent collection of documents from both sides of the conflict in Vietnam. I had the pleasure of taking a course with Prof. Rotter (the author of this book) in college, and currently use it in my own high school history course on Vietnam. Rotter organizes and introduces documents from different periods in the war and includes accounts from both American and Vietnamese perspectives.

This book is a good balanced account of the history of the Vietnamese Conflict. A nice compilation.
