Summary
In a novel of the Vietnam War, told from the North Vietnamese point of view, Kien narrates his memories of his youth, the war, and his attempts to cope with the horrors of war and his own survival
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The daring and controversial novel that took the world by storm-- a story of politics, selfhood, survival, and war.

Bao Ninh, a former North Vietnamese soldier, provides a strikingly honest look at how the Vietnam War forever changed his life, his country, and the people who live there. Originaly published against government wishes in Vietnam because of its nonheroic, non-ideological tone, The Sorrow of War has won worldwide acclaim and become an international bestseller.
