About the Book

The riveting, illustrated book based on the acclaimed ten-part PBS documentary series …

PERSONALLY SIGNED BY KEN BURNS AND GEOFFREY C. WARD


There are events that change the life of a nation, that mark a sharp break with what came before and affect all that comes after, leaving schisms and wounds that haunt later generations. The Vietnam War was such an event.

When the ten part documentary, The Vietnam War, written by Geoffrey C. Ward and directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, aired in 2017, it was hailed as “another masterpiece” (NPR) by longtime collaborators Burns and Ward and a comprehensive and evenhanded account of the complex conflict and it's legacy.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present their acclaimed companion book to the landmark documentary -- THE VIETNAM WAR: An Intimate History, an exclusive leather-bound Collector's Edition personally autographed by authors Geoffrey C. Ward and Ken Burns.

“An outstanding, indispensable survey of the Vietnam War." – Kirkus Reviews

Beginning with an overview of Vietnam's history as a French colony, THE VIETNAM WAR: An Intimate History meticulously chronicles the U.S. involvement in the country from 1954 to the fall of Saigon in 1975, telling the story through the voices and experiences of “ordinary” Americans and Vietnamese – soldiers, students, reporters, nurses, etc. – whose lives were changed by the fighting.

In addition, Ward and Burns present essays by such experts as Harvard historian Fredrik Logevall, antiwar activist Todd Gitlin, and novelist Viet Thanh Nguyen that examine in depth enduring questions about the war and its legacy.

THE VIETNAM WAR: An Intimate History also features hundreds of astonishing photographs, a collection that includes both iconic images and powerful rarely seen pictures, many of which will be unfamiliar even to most historians that document the everyday confusion and damage of the conflict.
