This review is from: A Better War: The Unexamined Victories and Final Tragedy of America’s Last Years in Vietnam (Paperback)
With over 72 reviews as on September 14, 2010, this book shows its deep mark on those who are interested in the Vietnam War. These reviews also confirm that even now, these so called ‘leftist living-room intellectuals’ won’t NEVER change! What a pity!
Is it a coincidence that almost all the criticizers are just ‘customer” or people with just one name like Indonesians, with one even gallantly calling the book ‘a piece of garbage’?
But with me, this book rather has a spiritual meaning: at least, in this low world, under the sun, the TRUTH always prevails, even if very late!
For me, this book didn’t mean to answer the question ‘Why did we lose the war’ BUT rather ‘Why we didn’t win the war?’ because forever, I know the just cause belongs to our Nationalist South Vietnam which simply just wanted to defend ourselves to preserve our country against the Comintern conquest through the hands of these rootless and inhuman lackeys in the North. They are just a minority but mastered in the art of terrorism, well organized and also TOO well supported by their Russian and Chinese Masters!
Also, what counts the most is that this book is like the long awaited motherly hand which finally comes to tenderly shut the still open eyes from the Black April 1975 of all these innumerable angered victims of the Communists, specially of these South Vietnam Generals who have committed suicide at the last hour like Major General NGUYEN KHOA NAM Commander of IV Corps and Military Region 4 , Brigadier General LE VAN HUNG Deputy Commander of the IV Corps/Military Region 4 at Can Tho , Brigadier General TRAN VAN HAI Commander 7th Infantry Division at Dong Tam, near My Tho , Major General PHAM VAN PHU Commander II Corps/Military Region 2 and so many other high and low ranking officers plus all the boat people who have perished in the Pacific Ocean.
For all of them and for me, please accept here our Thank You!, dear Doctor Lewis Sorley.
