Summary

A Noble Cause presents an unbiased view of why the Vietnam War was fought, how it was lost, and what effect it has had through analytical work and strong narrative, which offers a clear treatment of themes which have frequently been masked by sentiment or myth.

The military events, the political and strategic contexts, and the social and cultural impact of the Vietnam War are all brought together in this single, compellingly readable study.
