Abstract

This volume is the story of a young girl's survival in war-torn Vietnam during the First Indochina War between France and Vietnam, the civil war between North and South Vietnam, and the later American involvement in the Vietnam War. The author was born Nguyen Thi Loan in the village of Tao Xa, Thai Binh Province, in North Vietnam in 1947. When she was four years old, the Viet Minh attacked her village and killed her father, leaving Loan and her mother to fend for themselves. In this memoir, the author recounts her life and experiences throughout and after the war, but the volume is also an account of all the others who were uprooted, displaced, brutalized, and left homeless following the wars in Vietnam.
