Book Giveaway by vietnamwarera

vietnamwarera:

To celebrate 7000+ followers, I am going to be giving away a hardcover copy of Vietnam: A History by Stanley Karnow, first published in 1983. This is an essential volume to anyone looking to learn about the Vietnam War, and the long history behind it, in depth. 

From the book jacket:

The time is ripe for a comprehensive, fair-minded history of America’s war in Vietnam. Stanley Karnow’s magnificent book is precisely that - an enthralling narrative that clarifies, analyzes, and demystifies this tragic ordeal. Panoramic in scope, profound in understanding, and compassionate in its human portrayals, it is filled with fresh revelations drawn from secret documents and from exclusive interviews with hundreds of participants on both sides. In its wealth of detail and its sure grasp of the issues, Vietnam: A History transcends the past and contains lessons relevant to the present and future.

Notes:
The copy being given away is a used book, but in good condition. There are a few very small tears in the book jacket and there is discoloration of the book jacket on the spine. There is no writing or other marks anywhere on or in the book.

You must be willing to give me your full name and mailing address if you win. This information will not be shared with anyone else.

I will be covering the full cost of shipping. Because of this, I can only afford to ship within the United states.

I will be using Random Line Picker to determine the winner.

*The winner will be chosen the day after the giveaway ends and will have three days to contact me via ask box to claim the book or another winner will be chosen.*

Rules:

  • To enter, simply reblog this post.
  • You may only reblog twice.
  • Likes do not count.
  • Open to residents of the United States only.

*****Giveaway ends August 23, 2014 at 11:59pm EST.*****
