Annotation: Jonathan Schell's extraordinary on-the-scene writing about Vietnam has stood the test of time in our continuing attempt to understand how and why the United States went to war -- and how and why it lost. The Real War consists of two classic accounts of American military operations in Vietnam -- "The Village of Ben Suc" and "The Military Half" -- and Schell's subsequent look back at the war. It is without equal in re-creating the sights, the sounds, and the feel of Vietnam and is written "with a skill that many a veteran war reporter will envy" (The New York Times).
