Description
 
Howard R. Simpson (au); Pierre Salinger (fr). This is a fast-paced, colorful memoir by one of the few Americans to live in Vietnam during both the French & American wars. In the 1950s, Foreign Service officer Howard Simpson patrolled with French paratroopers, reported on Hanoi’s fall to the Vietminh, & was nearly machine-gunned in street fighting. In the 1960s, at a time when coups were the order of the day, he was a press advisor to Prime Minister Nguyen Khanh. When he returned to Vietnam recently to observe the shooting of a movie about Dien Bien Phu, he interviewed the legendary Vo Nguyen Giap, the architect of the North’s victory. “Lively . . . entertaining.”
