Hola,

Thanks for the interesting library addition.

Since you are interested in the end of the Vietnam War, I would like to recommend the following book - Brother Enemy by Nayan Chanda.

It deals with the time period after the fall of South Vietnam. It covers the Vietnamese invasion of Cambodia to overthrow Pol Pot and the war between China and Vietnam in 1979. I just finished it and found it to be very good.

So far, I think Black April is very good.
Hello,
I see that you have Black April by George Veith. Have you had a chance to read it yet? If so, what did you think? I have just started reading it.
my pleasure, Eduardo
hey EduardoT, gracias por tu cumplido. Me gusta mucha la lectura y ¿qué mejor que honrarla adquiriendo bellos ejemplares? Por eso me gusta mucho los libros de la Sociedad Folio. Tenés una biblioteca muy interesante también. ¡Saludos desde Honduras! Al parecer, estamos muy cerca (algo un tanto inusual en la internet).
¡Hola Eduardo! Empecé a estudiar español en el colegio, seguí estudiándolo en la universidad (estudié idiomas y ciencias políticas, y viajé a Chile, Argentina y Bolivia para tomar clases y trabajar), y ahora leo libros en español para seguir aprendiendo (o para no olivdar lo que aprendí en la escuela)...¡Un saludo desde los EE.UU.!
Thanks for your comment Eduardo. I'm glad you liked the review. I have to say, though, that if you can make time for The War That Killed Achilles, do so. It was a phenomenal book.
Flattered that you find my library interesting. Pleased to meet you.
Hi, Eduardo. Thank you for you insight on the Landmark Herodotus. I can't wait for my copy to arrive. After I read it, I'll tell you my impressions.
Ironically, I just got to the part in Beevor today where he mentions Rodimtsev. My knowledge has been mostly from the Republican side with particular interest right now in the International Brigades, especially now that so much material has apparently come out of the Soviet archives. I'll keep you posted re Rodimtsev's book as I will probably be posting reviews of these as I finish them. Good luck in your hunt for those books.

Hola, Eduardo -

No, the copy I have is in Russian, I bought it second-hand while I was working in Moscow. I'm doing a lot of reading right now on the Spanish Civil War and thought that this would be a good part of that as well as a chance to brush up my Russian. But I don't know anything more about the author and would be happy to hear more about him. I do know that many of the Russians who served in Spain did so under assumed names and many were only fully identified since the Soviet archives became open, also many of these veterans did not fare well in Stalin's purges of the Red Army.
