Unheralded Victory: Who Won the Vietnam War? Summary


An original military history, Unheralded Victory echoes some themes revisited in NATO's war on Serbia: how what gets reported can be more important than the events on the ground - especially if the frontline is a very dangerous place for a film crew. Unheralded Victory is a revisionist history of the Vietnam war, charting the defeat of the Viet Cong. It investigates why the popular image of the war then, as now, is that propagated by Hanoi's propoganda machine, and why US propaganda was so clumsy. Many myths are debunked: drug use among forces, `fragging', US morale: the author's account squares with the recollection of actual veterans. He also exposes a number of `eyewitnesses', some active in the veterans' organizations who were never in Vietnam and whose false testimony has contributed to enduring myth of the `crazed `Nam veteran' as portrayed in cinema and TV.
