(by Publishers Weekly)
Tang, a founding member of the Vietcong who now lives in exile in Paris, charges that a national democratic revolution in South Vietnam was made impossible both by North Vietnamese Communist Party ideologues and the U.S. militarization of the conflict at the expense of a political settlement. PW called this political memoir a "thoughtful and tragic account of the Vietnam War."
