Publisher Comments:

When he was a student in Paris, Truong Nhu Tang met Ho Chi Minh. Later he fought in the Vietnamese jungle and emerged as one of the major figures in the "fight for liberation" — and one of the most determined adversaries of the United States. He became the Vietcong's Minister of Justice, but at the end of the war he fled the country in disillusionment and despair. He now lives in exile in Paris, the highest level official to have defected from Vietnam to the West. This is his candid, revealing and unforgettable autobiography.

Chris Blaker, January 28, 2015 (view all comments by Chris Blaker)
An often unseen perspective of the Vietnam War. Too little has been written from the Vietnamese point of view (at least in English) and this book fills a gap in the picture of the second Indochina war. The author was a non-communist member of the National Liberation Front (Viet Cong) and Justice Minister to the Provisional Revolutionary Government. The fact that there were non-communist members of the Viet Cong and its political wing may come as surprise to some American readers. This book fills in subtle details on the NLF movement that run contrary to the American notion of the Viet Cong as an entirely communist and Northern led force. This book may not be as exciting as a book written by an American grunt, because the struggle is political rather than military, but for those with more than a superficial interest in the war I would recommend it.
