Brilliant account of how the war endured and ended. The perspective, as can be expected from the title, is from Hanoi. Clearly sets out how the regime there simultaneously sought military victory whilst courting world sympathy. Enormously refreshing to have such a balanced history.
If you are a Vietnam vet, as I am, you should read this book. The US policy's were not in the best interest of peaceful coexistence in the world. From the soldiers point of view the command structure, both governmental and military, was FUBAR.
There was certainly a lot more strife within the north (Hanoi) than I realized. There were many things that I have wondered about, now I have a much better understanding of what was really happening.

Very impressed with the research and viewpoint gathered from the communist side of the war. Highly recommend to anyone interested in understanding more about the politics and continuous poker match with not just the USA, North Vietnam, and South Vietnam but also how local countries and other key Cold War countries had incremental impacts on this outcome.
