    A book we should consider today!

    Not only does the author give a gripping analysis of France's involvement in the Indochina War, he raises questions which were significant concerning America's involvement in Vietnam, but more important, the issues he raises speak directly to US military intanglements today. A well written and insightful book. A very fast read.

    Superb account of 1st Indochina war

    Dr. Fall wrote a vivid, tragic account of the French defeat in Indochina. He provides in-depth analysis of French (and, later, American) tactics and strategies. His writing brings to life the trials of daily life for the soldiers on both sides. If you are lookin for an excellent analysis of why the French AND the Americans failed in Vietnam, buy this book!!
