The first-ever account of the entire Vietnam War in the graphic history format form its buildup and expansion in the early 1960s, the evacuation of Saigon in 1975, and the reconciliation and remembrance movement decades later that resulted in the construction of "The Wall"--the Vietnam Veterans Memorial. In addition to the conflict in Vietnam, it recounts the many tumultuous events in the United States from the halls of power in Washington, D.C. to the streets of cities across the nation that threatened to tear the society apart. An even-balanced and surprisingly comprehensive account in a ground-breaking format of a traumatic period of our history that resonates to today..
