Vietnam

There has been few and far between books dedicated to the plight of the Vietnam War but we are starting to see more and hear their valuable stories. Max Hastings is an authentic voice as he shares vivid personal memories as he reported on the war. “...he was among those helicoptered out of the US Saigon Embassy compound during the 1975 fi nal evacuation. ...Many treat the war as a US tragedy, yet Hastings sees it as overwhelmingly that of the Vietnamese people, of whom forty died for every American. While all the world has seen the image of a screaming, naked girl seared by napalm, it forgets countless eviscerations, beheadings and murders carried out by the communists. The people of both former Vietnams paid a bitter price in privation and oppression for the Northerners’ victory. No past volume has blended a political and military narrative of the entire confl ict with heart stopping personal experiences.” A complete, thorough and personal telling from a most credible journalist.
