This text fills a significant gap in most courses on the Viet Nam war. Material on the involvement of U.S. allies in Viet Nam is hard to findÑmuch of it is published abroad and it is often prohibitively expensive or simply not available in the U.S. Edited by two Australian scholars, this collection reflects the best work on the subject to date. Grey and Doyle collected essays from a variety of disciplines, and from both veteran and non-veteran contributors. An extensive bibliography and a useful chronology contribute to the anthology's value to students.
