The Myths of Tet

A roundtable review of my book The Myths of Tet: The Most Misunderstood event of the Vietnam War has been published by H-Diplo at

If you read any of the reviews in this roundtable, I urge you also to take a look at the "Author's Response" at the end, in which I point out ways all three of the reviewers misrepresented my book.

Edwin Moise

I found reading the entire set of discussions to be interesting, but Prof. Moise's final comments to be the most interesting and informative of all. While I don't always find myself in full agreement with a few of his views, overall I find him to be one of the most balanced and thoroughgoing researchers on the war's history. And being balanced about this history seems to ensure that one will be criticized by both sides of the eternal debate about it. I recommend anyone who finds this topic of interest to examine his final comments, and of course, to read his book.
