This is an excellent review of the topic and is highly recommended. Even though it is listed as a book for "young readers", an adult could benefit from reading this book. It is more factual than analytical although it offers good observations about issues related to the war. The bibliography (and 'linkography') is excellent. The author, a decorated Vietnam War Marine veteran appears in the National Geographic DVD on the war and has also written his own personal account of fighting in the war.
