About this product
- DescriptionIn this classic account of the French war in Indochina, Bernard B. Fall vividly captures the sights, sounds, and smells of the savage eight-year conflict in the jungles and mountains of Southeast Asia from 1946 to 1954. The French fought well to the last, but even with the lethal advantages of airpower, they could t stave off the Communist-led Vietnamese nationalists, who countered with a hit-and-run campaign of ambushes, booby traps, and nighttime raids. Defeat came at Dien Bien Phu in 1954, setting the stage for American involvement and opening ather tragic chapter in Vietnam's history.
- Author BiographyBernard B. Fall was a journalist specializing in Southeast Asia. Before he was killed while covering Vietnam in 1967, Fall wrote several other books, including Hell in a Very Small Place and Last Reflections on a War.
