Peter Davis, director of the Oscar-winning documentary Hearts and Minds: "Brilliant, beautiful, and painfulan essential book[It] brightly illuminates the question we all need to ask ourselves: what is America's place in the world?"

Marilyn B. Young, author of The Vietnam Wars: "Christian Appyargues persuasively that we must remember the war and its consequences if we are to come to a full reckoning with the past and finally dispel the myth of American exceptionalism."
