Here is the story of the "other side" of the Vietnam War--of the Vietcong and North Vietnamese--which has been largely untold until now. In this remarkable piece of oral history, the story emerges of the ordinary people of both North and South Vietnam, of the Vietcong guerrilla fighters and terrorists, North Vietnamese soldiers and cadres, monks, opposition leaders, propaganda chiefs and village secretaries.Vietnam: A Portrait of its People at Warprovides an account of dedication and heroism at all levels and also of the brutality and trauma faced by a people in the grip of revolution and war.
