10,000 Days of Thunder: A History of the Vietnam War

by Philip Caputo

Reviewed by Lawrence
Review posted on 7/29/2012
Book rating:


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.
