The stories of three survivors of the Vietnam War. Huynh Van Chinh and Tran Van Phuc, who had been colonels in the Army of Vietnam, lived through the torture of the "reeducation camps" and finally found freedom in America. Le Nguyen Binh tells of his dangerous escape from Vietnam.

44. Quang Pham: A sense of Duty:
Quang X. Pham's memoir on parallel tracks-his life, and his family's, in Vietnam and then America-is a story of hardship, separation, and loss, but ultimately also of courage, loyalty, patriotism and achievement, an inspiring human story movingly told.

45. Andrew Pham; Catfish and Mandala:
The story, with some of a mandala's repeated symbolic motifs, works on several levels at once. It is an exploration into the meaning of home, a descriptive travelogue, and an intimate look at the Vietnamese immigrant experience.

A richly detailed and thoughtful study that will force scholars of the Vietnam War to rethink traditional interpretations of the Diem government, the military-political struggle in South Vietnam, and the interaction between the Kennedy administration and Saigon.

49. Lewis Sorley: A Better War:
Using a host of oral interviews, 455 tape recordings made in Vietnam during the years 1968-1972 and numerous other sources, military historian Sorley has produced a first-rate challenge to the conventional wisdom about American military performance in Vietnam.
