In the second half of the twentieth century war raged in Vietnam. It was hard to know if it would ever end, and harder still to understand fully the rights and wrongs of the various protagonists. At last, the North Vietnamese turned out to be tough, resilient, and ultimately victorious. Patience in adversity sums up the Vietnamese character. After reunification in 1975 the Vietnamese experienced many difficulties. The immediate postwar years were harsh. Some fled into exile; others underwent "rehabilitation" to make them fit to live in a Communist state. To this were added economic hardships and even starvation. Since then, however, life has been transformed. The decision to abandon the centrally planned economy in favor of a "socialist market economy" was a bold step, as was the decision to throw open the doors and invite the world to invest in the new Vietnam. Visitors today will find a confident, independent people, nursing few if any grudges about the war. They are open and friendly, with a sense of humor and irony, and frankly curious about the outside world. Kind and generally helpful toward strangers, they are industrious, shrewd, and determined to improve their lot. Culture Smart! Vietnam outlines the history, culture, traditions, sensibilities, and modern way of life of the Vietnamese. It explains certain deep-seated attitudes, describes some of the social and cultural changes now under way, and gives practical advice on what to expect and how to behave in unfamiliar situations. It aims to help you discover for yourself the warmth and vast potential of this fascinating country and its delightful people.

Complex stories of war-time bravery, brutality, compassion, and futility can be found in Vietnam Stories: A Fudge's Memoir. Jack Crouchet, retired U.S. Army Colonel and former military judge, brings to life a controversial picture of Americans and Vietnamese in Vietnam during the war years of 1968-1969. Crouchet's unique position as military judge made him privy to the stories and lives of American soldiers, Vietnamese people, and the U.S. non-military residents who appeared before his court. Though not a book of war stories per se, Vietnam Stories provides a unique overview of that historical time and includes the author's reflections on the politics of the Vietnam war.A strange culture was created by the war in Vietnam. While twelve percent of military personnel were involved in actual combat, many civilians and high-ranking military persons lived in luxury in Saigon. They were furnished with airconditioned villas, apartments, and hotels; ate in exquisite French restaurants; and traveled in comfort. The Vietnam experience of youthful American combat soldiers was one of constant danger as well as confrontation with situations that many were unprepared to deal with. Well-armed and often immature, the soldiers sometimes made decisions which led to tragedy. Finally, there were the farmers of Vietnam, who wanted nothing more than to remain in their fields near the tombs of their ancestors.Those who have served in or have visited Vietnam will find much in their experiences to relate to in the pages of Vietnam Stories. -- Eugene F. Murrett, U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit
