The Timeline of the Vietnam War is a blow-by-blow account of this 10,000-day conflict and the effect of the war on the United States.

Illustrated throughout with both colour and black-and-white photographs that bring the conflict to life, the authoritative text charts the progress of the war with detailed examinations of key moments such as the Tet Offensive and My Lai massacre. The Timeline of the Vietnam War provides a graphic and compelling account of one of the most brutal conflicts of modern history and examines the impact that the war continues to have on American and Vietnamese society. The book covers the war chronologically, with full-colour artworks and archive photographs. At the foot of each text page is a timeline linking events that were happening elsewhere at the time, which ties in with the main gatefold presentation. At the back of The Timeline of the Vietnam War is an eight-page fold-out double-sided gatefold timeline, profiling key events throughout the war in a unique graphical representation, with cut-out images and colour keys under various themes and headings. The gatefold timeline forms a poster, which readers can cut out and keep on their wall for easy reference.
