"Beautifully written." — William Shawcross, front page, Washington Post Book World

"By showing the nature and hidden strength of our opponents, this account goes a long way toward explaining why America failed in Vietnam despite its greatly superior military power. But A Vietcong Memoir is more than just an exposition of the revolutionaries’ side of the war. It is also an absorbing and moving autobiography…An important addition not only to the literature of Vietnam but to the larger human story of hope, violence and disillusion in the political life of our era."

— Arnold R. Isaacs, Chicago Tribune

"Literate, mercifully free of the stridencies and banalities that characterize the Communists’ agitprop prose. The prose gives off an aura of authenticity and reasonableness."

— Robert Manning, The New York Times Book Review
