ARVN : life and death in the South Vietnamese Army by Robert K Brigham ( Book )
4 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Along the way, he explodes some of the myths about ARVN soldiers' cowardice, corruption, and lack of patriotism that have made the ARVN the scapegoat for America's defeat." "Ultimately, as Brigham shows, without any real political commitment to a divided Vietnam or vision for the future, the ARVN retreated into a subnational culture that redefined the war's meaning: saving their families. His book gives us a fuller understanding not only of the Vietnam War but also of the problems associated with U.S. nation building through military intervention."--BOOK JACKET
Guerrilla diplomacy : the NLF's foreign relations and the Viet Nam War by Robert K Brigham ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 1999 in English and held by 389 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"In 1960 revolutionaries in South Viet Nam created the National Liberation front, a political and military organization committed to overthrowing the Saigon government and liberating Viet Nam south of the seventeenth parallel. The role of the NLF during the war has been hotly debated, with officials in Washington claiming from the outset that the NLF was merely a puppet of Hanoi. Based on over a hundred interviews with former Communist cadre and high-ranking Party officials as well as extensive archival research in Viet Nam, Robert K. Brigham's is a definitive work that provides a focus on the NLF not found elsewhere. It contributes greatly to our understanding of the Viet Nam War and encourages a reassessment of that conflict."--BOOK JACKET

Why the North won the Vietnam War ( Book )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
In this new collection of essays on the Vietnam War, eminent scholars of the Second Indo-china conflict consider several key factors that led to the defeat of the United States and its allies. The book adopts a candid and critical look at the United State's stance and policies in Vietnam, and refuses to condemn, excuse, or apologize for America's actions in the conflict. Rather, the contributors think widely and creatively about the varied reasons that may have accounted for the United State's failure to defeat the North Vietnamese Army, such as the role played by economics in America's defeat. Other fresh perspectives on the topic include American intelligence failure in Vietnam, the international dimensions of America's defeat in Vietnam, and the foreign policy of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam. None of the essays have been previously published, and all have been specifically commissioned for the book by its editor, Marc Jason Gilbert
