really liked it
bookshelves: other-places, other-times
Recommended for: people interested in the history of Vietnam.
Read from April 25 to 28, 2010

I think this was a book Mark wanted to read, but I picked it up and started reading. The format is to have each chapter headed by a date and news summary which concerns what was happening in Cambodia, South Vietnam and Thailand in 1975.
The action begins in the USA, moves to the Philippines and then to South Vietnam and Cambodia.
I kept wondering how the book could end as there didn't seem to be enough pages left to reach a conclusion, but the author managed it cleverly, and I enjoyed the references to places whose names I have become familiar with, and the historical perspective which seemed to be accurate. Not one I expected to enjoy so much, and it seems quite a 'different' story from the usual for this author.
