... the ultimate insider's account of the war from the South Vietnamese side, including the appalling story of how the American intervention actually happened." ―Washington Post

This book gives Americans a rare opportunity―the chance to see the Vietnam experience through Vietnamese eyes. Few Vietnamese know their recent history as well as Bui Diem does. And none has told it better." ―Ambassador William Jorden

... well-written and at times illuminating... " ―Library Journal

About the Author:

Bui Diem is now a consultant on Vietnamese affairs living in Rockville, Maryland.

David Chanoff is the co-author of several other books on Vietnam.

From Library Journal:

LJ's reviewer found this firsthand account of Vietnam's post-World War II struggles "well-written and at times illuminating" but also assessed Diem, the country's ambassador to the United States, as "seldom self-critical" and "detached." The author, however, clearly makes his case that when the United States became involved, our troops essentially took over the war with a "blatant disregard of South Vietnamese interests." (LJ 9/1/87)
