Read in April, 2011

Here is a book that puts the spotlight on the truth of the Vietnam war from the Vietnamese perspective. This is how the war was perceived from their point of view. The fighter pilot author, Hoi Tran, lived through it all and honorably so. He takes us on a journey from the early days of Ho Chi Min, through the French and Japanese occupations and the country's division into north and south, the American and South Vietnamese war against the Viet Cong and North Vietnamese Communist aggressors, the politically negotiated settlement, Vietnamization and the withdrawal of American forces to the final fall of the Republic of South Vietnam to Ho Chi Min's communist forces in 1975. It is the story of individual victory of the human will; it is a tale of woe over the political defeat of freedom in Vietnam. It is the unfinished tale of the battle between good and evil. This book is a must read for every military person, veteran and freedom loving patriot.
