內容簡介


美國公共電視台2017年9月開始放映的越戰系列影片文字版,由獲獎的歷史學家與電影人共同打造,剖析越戰如何撕裂美國,是一部清晰且強有力的衝突史。

越戰結束已經超過40年,但是它還是持續不斷地糾纏著美國人。他們依舊在討論為什麼會出現在越南,有沒有可能打贏這場戰,回應戰事的各路人馬的是非對錯。當越戰開始分裂美國,它所產生的政治斷層線深刻到現在還在撕裂這個國家。

本書作者群在美國與越南做了數十道採訪,其觀點來自涉入戰爭各層面的人們,他們包括了:美國與越南軍人和他們的家人,兩國的高階官員,反戰人士,戰俘…等。它帶我們深入戰事的混沌與張力之中,並且解釋了美國為何發兵越南且久留該國的理由。

本書並非要選邊站,它只是想要理解越戰為什麼會發生,並且為讀者釐清越戰所留下的複雜遺緒。優美的文字伴隨豐富的圖片,這是一本勢必會引起討論的越戰史。

From the award-winning historian and filmmakers of The Civil War, Baseball, The War, The Roosevelts, and others: a vivid, uniquely powerful history of the conflict that tore America apart--the companion volume to the major, multipart PBS film to be aired in September 2017.

More than forty years after it ended, the Vietnam War continues to haunt our country. We still argue over why we were there, whether we could have won, and who was right and wrong in their response to the conflict. When the war divided the country, it created deep political fault lines that continue to divide us today. Now, continuing in the tradition of their critically acclaimed collaborations, the authors draw on dozens and dozens of interviews in America and Vietnam to give us the perspectives of people involved at all levels of the war: U.S. and Vietnamese soldiers and their families, high-level officials in America and Vietnam, antiwar protestors, POWs, and many more. The book plunges us into the chaos and intensity of combat, even as it explains the rationale that got us into Vietnam and kept us there for so many years. Rather than taking sides, the book seeks to understand why the war happened the way it did, and to clarify its complicated legacy. Beautifully written and richly illustrated, this is a tour de force that is certain to launch a new national conversation.
