Osprey Special Editions (Military) : Rolling Thunder in a Gentle Land : The Vietnam War Revisited

From its beginnings in the Colonial War with France in the 1940s and 50s, through to the final evacuation of Saigon in 1975 and beyond, each chapter of Rolling Thunder in a Gentle Land : The Vietnam War Revisited focuses on a different aspect of the Vietnam War. Officers from both the NVA and ARVN take a first hand look at the strategy and tactics of both sides and give critical assessments of where the war went wrong. Le Ly Hayslip provides a harrowing account of life for the typical South Vietnamese civilian caught up in the war. Acclaimed historians and journalists, such as Bernard Edelman and Arnold Isaacs, take a critical look at the many aspects of the war from the river war and the air war through to the strategy and doctrine used by the US forces. Text by Andrew Wiest.
