Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 087727102X, Paperback)

The eminently fascinating woman whose strength, courage, and intelligence made an impact on Vietnamese history has written a memoir that deserves to be read. Born into a peasant family in South Vietnam, Mrs. Nguyen Thi Dinh initially joined the Vietminh resistance against French occupation. In 1960 she led the uprising in Ben Tre province against the Diem regime, was then appointed to the leadership committee of the NLF (National Liberation Front) in her province, and later served as Chairman of the South Vietnam Women's Liberation Association. The oppressive policies of Diem and the problems of civil war and American involvement are written about with powerful immediacy-effectively illustrating the patriotic fervor and determination of those she fought with and helped lead. 1976. 7th printing 1998. 77 pages.
