Vietnam : A Portrait of Its People at War, Paperback

Vietnam : A Portrait of Its People at War Paperback



The American experience during the Vietnam conflict is universally known: the brutalization of the US fighting men, the drug abuse and the trauma.

Even today the very word 'Vietnam' is too often interpreted as referring to this conflict (and specifically the American perception of it) rather than to the country and its people.

The view from the other side - the Vietcong and North Vietnamese - has been virtually ignored.

In this remarkable piece of oral history the story emerges of the ordinary people of both North and South Vietnam, of the Vietcong guerrilla fighters and terrorists, North Vietnamese soldiers and cadres, monks, opposition leaders, propaganda chiefs and village secretaries. "Vietnam: A Portrait of its People at War" provides an account of dedication and heroism at all levels and also of the brutality and trauma faced by a people in the grip of revolution and war.
