New Controversial Book Reviews ( Historical Facts vs Errors and Omissions ) Author(s)
Appy teaches at U. Massachusetts, Amhurst. He is considered a "...widely known as a leading expert on the Vietnam experience". In another article he relates how he has "educated" hundreds of students in his VN classes. Read the attached review for a less than favorable view of his intellectual expertise and integrity. America's Longest War
It is very disturbing to reflect upon the fact that this book is otherwise praised to the heavens and Herring is deemed a "god of Viet Nam studies". I actually heard him praised in just these terms at a VN conference. With hopes you can forgive crass language I think this book is a piece of sh-t, and sloppy amateur history.
