The Definitive Illustrated History

Stunning visuals—including iconic photos, propaganda posters, maps, and artwork—bring the Vietnam War into sharp focus, offering a compelling way to learn about its main events, developments, and participants. Featuring succinct text, quotes from people on all sides of the conflict, eyewitness accounts, and before-and-after sidebars that set each entry in historical context, the volume's two-page spreads each explore a single topic, moving from the colonization of Indochina through the war's aftermath. For example, the entry on the Ho Chi Minh Trail includes a North Vietnamese propaganda photo of smiling volunteers carrying ammunition along the trail, a replica of a bicycle used by the Viet Cong to transport supplies, a quote from a Marine about how the war would have ended differently had the U.S. managed to cut the trail, and a picture of the trail today. Grades 9 and up. Index. 10½" x 12". Dorling Kindersley. 360 pages. ©2017.
