Summary

In this sweeping and harrowing chronicle, Spector draws on a wealth of oral histories and newly declassified documents to show us the war that television missed. Here are the race riots and drug use that swept the American army; the rampant corruption of the ARVN; the potent mix of myth and ideology that made the North Vietnamese such formidable foes. Panoramic in its scope, riveting in its detail, After Tet is a triumph of military and political history.
