Although the Paris Peace Accords ended direct United States military involvement in Vietnam on January 27, 1973, the process of withdrawal lasted over three years. This illuminating volume chronicles this withdrawal, its background, and its impact through a combination of official history and first-person accounts from key players at every level. Brief historical narratives join recollections from U.S. servicemen and support staff, North and South Vietnamese soldiers, and such notable figures as Henry Kissinger, Alexander Haig and Richard Nixon to reveal the human story behind the history. With a biographical dictionary summarising the lives of important individuals mentioned in the text, a glossary of unusual terms and acronyms, and an analysis of the war casualties under each U.S. president, this volume provides a singular perspective on the Vietnam War's denouement.
