"[Logevall's] latest work masterfully presents the war's roots in the U.S. reaction to the French colonial experience." (starred review) 04/02/2012 "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." - Jordan Smith 08/29/2012 "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. " - Alan Brinkley 09/09/2012
