An old book but a great account of the Vietnam war and has been well read and repaired at Canterbury Tales Bookshop.
The Ten Thousand Day War is the best book on the subject many have said, particulary in the French war in Indochina and America's involvement in it.
The book is definitely fascinating and was written after the war ended, giving it a retrospective feel, the book is not extremely long but gives you all the information you will need to fully understand why French and American troops fought and died in a country that most people couldnt find on a map and why it is still a huge controversy to this day.
Also, the book doesnt shove opinions down your throat, it is a history of the war and allows you to see the war from different viewpoints with reference to many of the important figures of the war.
An excellent read that cuts through the controversy with the facts.
