9780028810089: Tiger in the Barbed Wire: An American in Vietnam, 1952-1991

A former US Foreign Service officer and a novelist, Howard R. Simpson lived in Vietnam during both the French and the American involvements. In the 1950s he went on patrols at Dien Bien Phu as a USIA war correspondent, covered the fall of Hanoi, acted as a press adviser to Premier Diem, and was shot at during the Revolt of the Sects. In the 1950s he was a press adviser to Prime Minister Khanh. Simpson recently returned to Vietnam, and whilst there he interviewed General Giap. In this book he offers an insider's account of an explosive period. As he progresses from neophyte to "old Indochina hand", he describes what Vietnam was like then and what it is like today.
