Ending the Vietnam War: A History of America's Involvement in and Extrication From the Vietnam War

The material in this book is already largely familiar to students of the Vietnam War, but up until now Kissinger's account of the protracted extrication from Vietnam under the Nixon and Ford administrations has been spread over a number of different volumes. The story is told with great style, but the added convenience has not come with any added reliability.
