General Thi served in the Vietnamese National Army, also known as the Army of the Republic of Viet Nam (or ARVN). His last position was commander of an Army Corps Task Force south of the Demilitarized Zone. He fought for twenty-five years in Vietnam until Saigon fell in 1975. Here he provides a rare and valuable insight into South Vietnam’s side of the Vietnam War. General Thi pulls no punches in his denunciation of the various regimes of the Republic, and of the complacency and arrogance toward Vietnam in the policies of both France and the United States.
