Translated from the Vietnamese.
"Victory in Vietnam is the People's Army of Vietnam's own account of two decades of struggle, now available for the first time in English. It is a definitive statement of the Vietnamese point of view concerning foreign intrusion in their country since before American involvement - and it reveals that many of the accepted truths in our own histories of the war are simply wrong."--BOOK JACKET.
