Like many, I was unfamiliar with the Vietnam War. I knew it took place in the 1960’s/70’s and was in Vietnam. I’m sure every average human being knows this. The thing I enjoy about this book is that it is like a comic book. Better yet, as the title says, a GRAPHIC history. Call me remedial, but the pictures greatly help explain how the war went down. Sure I can just go watch Apocalypse Now, but the movie only tells a little chunk about Vietnam. Mostly waiting around and killing people! hahaha. Thanks to this book I feel I have a comfortable understanding about the war as a whole. From the start with Dwight Eisenhower & Lyndon B. Johnson to the end with Richard Nixon. Not to mention all the Vietcong in between! A great read that shouldn’t take more than a week of steady progress.
