    Any good books about the Vietnam War? Discussion/Question I'm looking for any recommendations on books about the Vietnam War; specifically the run-up to it, how it became a war, and how the US so totally misunderstood its enemy and lost it. The book focuses on successful agricultural strategies of upland farmers, particularly in south and south-east Asia, and presents over 50 contributions by scholars from around the world and from various disciplines, including agricultural economics, ecology and anthropology.
