We owe a great debt to Marilyn Young. John Fitzgerald, and Tom Grunfeld, who, in The Vietnam War: A History in Documents, have intelligently compiled and introduced a comprehensive collection of primary sources on one of the most contentious events in twentieth-century international history. Covering the period from the First Indochina War to the bitter aftermath of the American conflict, the documents provide a well-rounded overview of Vietnam’s modern nationalist struggle, although one perhaps most useful to educators of United Stales history rather than Asian history.
