Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Originally published in 1961, before the United States escalated its involvement in South Vietnam, "Street Without Joy" offered a clear warning about what American forces would face in the jungles of Southeast Asia: a costly and protracted revolutionary war fought without fronts against a mobile enemy. In harrowing detail, Fall describes the brutality and frustrations of the Indo-china War, and the savage eight-year conflict - ending in 1954 after the fall of Dien Bien Phu - in which French forces suffered a staggering defeat at the hands of Communist-led Vietnamese nationalists. With its frontline perspective, vivid reporting, and careful analysis, "Street without Joy" was required reading for policymakers in Washington and GIs in the field and is now considered a classic.
