At the end of the offensive, which had centered upon the city for just over a month January 30 March 3, 1968 , approximately 5000 civilians had been killed and the ci I cried a lot reading this book, probably because I was born and raised in Hue thus I m familiar with all the settings and names Nha Ca mentioned War is severe, inhumane and unjust, no matter which side you are in My condolence goes to all the blood shed, Northerners and Southerners, victors and losers.
Nha Ca s viewpoint may be a bit subjective to me and her writing is not so impressive but the historical background makes this book unique and precious to anyone who wants to know what exactly happened in the Vietnam War.
This book was written in 1969 and has been republished in a new translation It s the story of what civilians including the author and her family went through during the horrendous fighting that took place in the city of Hue during the 1968 Tet Offensive Few books relate the horror of war among innocent civiliansgraphically than this one does It does not make for comfortable reading, but the tale should be told.

A powerful and terrifying memoir of the Tet Offensive from the perspective of a young Vietnamese woman who was trapped with her family during the Battle for Hue in 1968 Nha Ca opens and closes her account with the story of a dog swimming midstream in the Perfume River Whenever the dog swam back to shore, America G.
I.
s shot near the dog and forced it to swim back into midstream Because the dog lacked the endurance to swim to the other side of the river it continued to swim toward Hue and suffertaunting from American soldiers Eventually the dog was wounded and drowned Nha Ca appropriately uses this story as a metaphor for her and her family s struggles to survive during the Battle for Hue January 30 March 3, 1968 Nha Ca and her family are literally caught in the crossfire of American and VC firefights throughout the battle and Nha C I won a Goodreads ARC copy of this book This is an important addition to the Vietnam War library It s a difficult book to read, and it wasn t the most compelling book to read, but that s mostly due to the subject matter Mind you, war literature is generally not light reading, but this account coming via a layperson makes this evensobering It s unrelentingly dark and unflinching in the depictions of the gory scenes That said, I was curious to see how the author was able to make it through and who among her family would survive.
