Last Night I Dreamed of Peace: An Extraordinary Diary of Courage from the Vietnam War

by Dang Thuy Tram
£7.99   paperback  Ebury Press (2009)

Last Night I Dreamed of Peace: An Extraordinary Diary of Courage from the Vietnam War by Dang Thuy Tram 'I've been up since 4 a.m, preparing for the enemy's attack...'
 
On June 22 1970, Dang Thuy Tram was killed by an American patrol in South Vietnam. She was an idealistic young doctor trying to defend her patients and, discovered amongst her possessions, was this remarkable diary - returned by a US officer to her family over 35 years later.
 
A bestseller in her home country, Dang Thuy Tram's diary shows the Vietnam War through the eyes of a woman fighting for survival. Last Night I Dreamed of Peace explains what it is like to live in the shadow of the enemy; to hide within earshot of a traitor's footfalls; to be full of hope and longing for love, and to look towards the future when the whole world is collapsing.

"Thuy Tram's diary has been described as "the Vietnamese Anne Frank", combining vivid depiction of the violence and dreadful conditions of the conflict with a moving, very personal account."
