About the Author: 
A medical doctor who served the South-Vietnam Army, the author underwent re-education camp in post-war Vietnam. After his imprisonment, he left for the US and has been practicing medecine there since. During the conflicts with China and Cambodia, he was still living in Vietnam and had been studying the evolution of the situation. In his US residence, as a hobby, he later started extensive research on the subject.
