    Can someone give me a list with good and informative books about the war in vietnam ?

    I´ve some already

    Der Tod im Reisfeld- Dreißig Jahre Krieg in Indochina
    (The Death in the rice paddy - thirty years of war in Indochina), by Peter Scholl-Latur <<-- great book, he is one of the few good journalists here in germany, he arrived in the Nam in the end of 1945 abord the french ship "Andus" as a german volunteer of the Commando Parachutiste Ponchardier and left vietnam in 1975 as reporter.

    The Vietnam War 1956-1975,
    Special Forces Camps in Vietnam 1961-70,
    Khe Sanh 1967-68: Marines Battle for Vietnam's Vital Hilltop Base,
    TET-Offensive 1968,
    US Army Infantryman in Vietnam 1965-73,
    US Marine Corps Tank Crewman 1965-70: Vietnam,
    B-52 Stratofortress Units in Combat 1955-1973,
    all these books are published by osprey and it would be nice if you can name other books, which deals with this war.

    A very good collection about the Vietnam War was published by Time-Life Books in the 1980's. They can be hard to come by but you may find them.

    Hey JC, thx I´ll try to get it if possible. Have you ever read Requiem: By the Photographers Who Died in Vietnam and Indochina, it´s expensive, but I guess it´s worth to spend so much money for a book.
