    Default Vietnam Journal vs. The Nam

    So I'm a huge Vietnam War buff. I've been interested in reading some comics focused on the Vietnam War and have boilded them down to two books. Don Lomax's Vietnam Journal or Marvel's The Nam. What would everyone recommend? Why do you like either one? Is one particularly better than the other? Thanks

    Both are great titles, though I give the edge to Journal for its more realistic, non-CCA approved approach.

    Vietnam Journal is the better of the two for the reason Cei-U states, but you can't go wrong with The 'Nam, either, especially the Golden illustrated issues.

    Vietnam Journal is a must read.

    Also, this is worth your time:
