"[Logevall's] latest work masterfully presents the war's roots in the U.S. reaction to the French colonial experience." (starred review)
"EMBERS OF WAR is simply an essential work for those seeking to understand the worst foreign-policy adventure in American history. Logevall has tapped new resources, including extensive archives in France and what is available in Vietnam. He has a complete grasp of the vast literature on what the Vietnamese call The American War, and even though readers known how the story ends . . . they will be as riveted by the tale as if they were hearing it for the first time."
"It is the most comprehensive history of that time [from the end of World War II to the beginning of the second Vietnam War in 1959]. Logevall...has drawn from many years of previous scholarship as well as his own. And he has produced a powerful portrait of the terrible and futile French war from which Americans learned little as they moved toward their own engagement in Vietnam. "
