The Official Lite History (& Cookbook) of the
Vietnam War by Alan Dawson
- Couching a lot of history in an hilarious
question and answer format, this book is a must
read for VN vets who may wonder if the war they
have been reading about for the last three
decades is really the same one they remember. It
is also an excellent book for the friends and
families who want to share the
"slanguage" and the private, until now,
humor they have been denied. It will also benefit
the students of the Late, Great Indochina
Conflict who would like some balance to the
"history" lessons they are being fed.
Dawson correctly points out that the Vietnam
Experience did not end on a Freedom Bird, but
includes the abuse or neglect that was our
homecoming. He differentiates between the
"anti-war" and the
"anti-U.S." elements in the protest
movements of the era. He puts My Lai into
perspective against the Communist massacres at
Hue and Dak Song. He corrects popular, and widely
held, mis-conceptions about a wide range of
subjects such as when the first American
serviceman was killed. the longest held P.O.W.,
the timing of the NVA entry into the war, even
the sexual prowess (or lack thereof) amongst the
Vietnamese bar girls.
