Publisher's Summary

Bao Ninh, a former North Vietnamese soldier, provides a strikingly honest look at how the Vietnam War forever changed his life, his country, and the people who live there. Originally published against government wishes in Vietnam because of its nonheroic, nonideological tone, The Sorrow of War has won worldwide acclaim and become an international best seller.

    "Wow!"

    I wish everyone could read this book. strangely enough I was reading it while watching Ken Burns Vietnam. the words of the author we're in perfect harmony with the words of our own soldiers

    "the book is interesting, but hard to follow "

    This is an interesting book, sometimes hard to follow. As you get towards the end you start to understand, locking in all of your interest.

    Story
    "An amazing book. I have read so many books from another perspective and this one blew my mind."

    This book is in the same league as All Quiet on the Western Front and even Forgotten Soldier. It was a far more coherent version of The things we carried and the prose if this book kept me glued to every word. A real classic.
