Fire In The Lake: The Vietnamese And The Americans In Vietnam
- Publish Date: 1972-08-01
- Binding: Hardcover
- Author: Frances Fitzgerald
This work, based on Frances FitzGerald's own research and travels in Southeast Asia in the era of the Vietnam War, takes us inside Vietnam - into the traditional, ancestor-worshiping villages and the corrupt, crowded cities, into the conflicts between Communists and anti-Communists, Catholics and Buddhists, generals and monks - and reveals the country as if through Vietnamese eyes. Fire in the Lake shows how America utterly and tragically misinterpreted the realities of Vietnam.
