Summary
A novel of the Vietnam War is written from the perspective of the North Vietnamese, profiles human characters who are wrenched by the same pain and fear as their enemies, and follows the hero's ten-year separation from his loved ones. Reprint. NYT.
Amazon.com description: Product Description: The daring and controversial novel that took the world by storm-- a story of politics, selfhood, survival, and war. Featured in The Vietnam War by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick airing September 2017.

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.
