You must read this if you have any interest in what went on in this Vietnam war.Not our Western view at all.
This will affect your mind!

One more reason to wonder why we brought so much suffering to the Vietnamese. This is a great book, similar to All Quiet on the Western Front. Too bad George Bush didn't read it at Yale. Might not have made a difference, I suppose.

Good book. Helped me to realize that the troops on the other side felt the same things we did, and that we all belong to the same human race.

I found this a somewhat difficult book to become involved in. It is perhaps reflective of the difficulties of translation particularly when much of the writing is to do with the authors inner thoughts & feelings rather direct historical facts.

It's been awhile since I last read this but I remember it as a powerful account of the Vietnam war from a Vietnamese perspective.

I am a Viet Nam Veteran and have always had an interest in the history of that area. It was good to read about the experience form another perspective. I was confused if the the character Kien was Bao Ninh and did all his experiences actually occur to Bao Ninh or was some of this fiction?
