Biographical Books on Vietnam War
I am not a student of the Vietnam War. I have not researched it. I have only read 2 of the books I'm listing here. But the Vietnam War has become an every day part of my life. Very few days go by that I'm not working on my website... Faces From the Wall... or answering emails in regards to it. I've created this list and the index database as possible resource information for family, friends, and researchers.
These aren't all the books written on the Vietnam War... these are just a few that I found moving through the bookstore or that were specially given to me.
