Descripción

New York, 1985, St Martins, US first edition, hard bound in dust jacket, 6x9, VG/VG condition ( dj price clipped), 383 pages, chronology, index, endpaper maps, ----------------------------- Covers the French War, the American War and the Chinese war in Indochina. For over thirty-five years, the world's ideologies have been fought out in the rice fields and jungles, the towns and cities, of Indochina. In this remarkable eye-witness account the author has condensed all his experiences and observations of those wars into a series of graphic images. Sights, sounds, and smells come alive in a vivid recreation, by a neutral but passionately involved on-the-spot witness, of one of the most tragic battlegrounds of modern history.The author, who is a TV reporter and journalist, has a unique knowledge of this troubled area, having first travelled to Southeast Asia on board a French troopship in 1945. Since then he has •revisited it many times as a journalist covering the three successive wars — the war against French colonialism, the American involvement in Vietnam, and the final devastation of Kampuchea. He sees the drama of those years as a tragedy in which every illusion of freedom has been shattered, as the French, the Americans and the Khmer Rouge have each in turn tried to impose their own version of freedom upon others by force. A runaway bestseller in West Germany, this is a major new account of the most important area of conflict in modern times. N° de ref. de la librería 39392
