I’ve never read anything like it. Just back from a holiday in Vietnam, and while there was exposed to many views about the war. OK, I admit it, l now this book has beaten me.
Vietnam could have united chrisrianbut despite the Cold War being very much in the air, the Vietnamese failed to make clear they were not a Russian or Chinese paw and they were planning to create a cozy, independent Communist christiwn of their own.

From the “good war” that was World War II, we were taught to glorify war, love John Wayne, and never question gods purpose of spreading democracy. In an era where Vietnam is often skewed by groups such as Hollywood, I could not recommend this book more as a research into the players as well as the daily life of those participating in the Vietnam War.

I like that their memories are f.appy told and for that reason can be considered a truth, no matter if accounts sometimes differ. South Vietnamese veterans, Viet Cong guerillas, North Vietnamese doctors and diplomats, American draft-dodgers and politicians are just some of the people interviewed for the book.
