    1. Americans spend a lot of time agonizing over the Vietnam War. Who is to blame for losing this conflict? The political leaders? The military? The media? Was it the protesting college students? The hippies? The anti-war left?Maybe North Vietnam had something to do with it. "Victory at Any Cost--the Genius of Viet Nam's Vo Nguyen Giap" by Cecil Currey reminds us that one can't study any war without understanding "the other side." Currey bypasses much of the turgid, politically correct communist hag [...]


    2. Cuốn sách này không hoàn toàn thuyết phục tôi. Tôi đoán là ông Currey viết tiểu sử Võ Nguyên Giáp với một kết luận có sẵn trong đầu , và cuốn sách của ông là nhằm chứng minh kết luận đó - rằng Võ Nguyên Giáp là một thiên tài quân sự. Với cách tiếp cận như vậy, ông gần như gán mọi thắng lợi quân sự của cách mạng Việt Nam trong hai cuộc chiến tranh cho Võ Nguyên Giáp, và những thất b [...]


    3. Cecil B. Currey's book on Vo Nguyen Giap is an utterly excellent book! It's gripping, engaging, provides historical context, contains essential quotes, and shows Giap to be the logistical, tactical, and strategic genius he was as a general leading North Vietnam to defeat the Japanese, the French, the US, the South Vietnamese, the Cambodians, and the Chinese. No one else has done so much with so little. I'm going to reprint my review for Giap: The General Who Defeated America in Vietnam by James [...]


    4. A military biography of Viet Nam's General Vo Nguyen Giap who organized the defeat of invaders of his country; France, America and China. Both he and Ho were able to win because they mobilized the ordinary people who were willing to make mind-boggling sacrifices to win "at any cost". If you want to understand why the French and the Americans lost, reading this book is a good start.


    5. Fascinating bio of a little known person. I've read quite a lot of history, politics, and fiction about Vietnam, but this one gave me new information and a better understanding of what happened there in the 30th century and why.




    6. Cuốn sách phác họa Đại tướng Võ Nguyên Giáp với hình tượng của 1 vị tướng vĩ đại đã giúp quân đội VN đánh bại 2 đế quốc mạnh nhất. Vì thế nhiều lúc cảm tưởng như việc hình tượng hóa hơi lớn mà thiếu đi những lời nhận xét hay phê bình thẳng thắn từ nhiều phía. Cuốn sách mang tính tường thuật lại sự kiện nhiều hơn là bình luận sự kiện dựa trên quan điểm của tác giả. [...]


    7. Quite an enigmatic individual. He started with nothing as a school teacher and built an army of citizens. Whether I agree with him or his tactics, is besides the point, Giap was without a doubt a great General that the Vietnamese people needed. He took on the French, the Americans, and the Chinese and beat them all!


    8. As Currey writes in the end of the book Giap was not nice person, nor did he win all his battles, but the results he achieved rival anyone who even commandeered an army. Well researched and written.
