Riassunto: On March 8 1965, in response to intense communist activity throughout South Vietnam, the US 9th Marine Brigade landed at Danang and went into immediate action against communist forces attacking US military installations. Thus began the start of 10 years of American involvement in Vietnam, which was played out in front of the world's media and beamed directly into the living rooms of millions of American families. Voices from Vietnam is an account of the conflict told through the words of those from both sides who took part: soldiers, airmen, sailors, politicians and civilians. There are first-hand accounts of operations on land, at sea and in the air, such as Cedar Falls, Junction City, Rolling Thunder and the Tet Offensive of 1968. As well as eyewitness accounts, these operations and other engagements are illustrated by maps for ease of understanding. Voices from Vietnam is not just the story of American personnel who served in the war, it is also the account of those North and South Vietnamese who were caught up in war. Read what it was like to be a member of the Viet Cong in the Iron Triangle near Saigon, a resident of Hanoi during the American bombing offensives against the city, or a South Vietnamese soldier fighting in Saigon during the Tet Offensive. Voices from Vietnam is the story of how one of the most monumental events of the twentieth century affected and shaped the lives of those it touched and continues to affect.
