Nam Magazines

More than twenty years after America withdrew from Vietnam, the men who fought there have begun to come to terms with the pain caused by the war. Drawing on the wartime memories of these men, Nam describes how America’s war machine tore through Southeast Asia, fueled by billions of dollars but no real commitment to win. This year-by-year chronicle includes firsthand accounts highlighted in fact boxes plus a narrative overview of the conflict. Vivid color and black-and-white photographs punch home the realities of life in Vietnam, documenting the terrifying devastation of air strikes and heated jungle battles, as well as the mind-numbing boredom in between. From Da Nang to the U.S. evacuation in 1975, here is the brutal, ugly story of the only war America ever lost.
