"Maraniss. . . is a writer with a masterly sense of narrative pace....The tale unfolds with a magisterial sweep that recaptures the war and its era."--The New York Times Book Review
"My nominee for must-read nonfiction book of the year. . . . They Marched Into Sunlight is that miraculous thing, a substantive, exhaustively researched work of history that reads like a novel."--Maureen Corrigan "Fresh Air (NPR) "
"The towering work of nonfiction this year. . . . Maraniss' great achievement is to be epic and intimate at the same time."--Samuel G. Freedman "Newsday "
"A masterful work that brings the conflict back with a rush of cinema veritΓ© emotion and tension. . . . Over the years, Vietnam has produced several classics, all of them different: Dispatches, by Michael Herr, and A Bright Shining Lie, by Neil Sheehan. Here is another."--The Economist
