"Thirty years after he covered the war as a young combat correspondent, David Lamb returned to Vietnam to cover the peace. He moved into an apartment in downtown Hanoi, the city he once viewed as the "enemy" capital, and began exploring the new Vietnam, a country emerging from years of political and economic isolation." "For four years Lamb crisscrossed the country, interviewing personalities from Vietnam's dark days - figures such as the legendary general, Vo Nguyen Giap, and the wartime voice of Hanoi's propaganda machine, Hanoi Hannah - and scores of uncelebrated Vietnamese students, former soldiers, shopkeepers, Communist Party members, and returning boat people. He roamed from Sapa on the Chinese border to Dien Bein Phu, Khe Sanh, and Can Tho in the depths of the Mekong Delta. He met with young engineers on the Ho Chi Minh trail, once the world's deadliest road. He joined a group of former Viet Cong and American GIs seeking reconciliation at the very fire support base where they had fought deadly battles. He explored the charming back alleyways of Hanoi and tasted the giddy excitement of a booming Saigon."--BOOK JACKET.
