This landmark work, based on Frances FitzGerald's own research and travels in Southeast Asia in the era of the Vietnam War, takes us inside Vietnam -- into the traditional, ancestor-worshiping villages and the corrupt, crowded cities, into the conflicts between Communists and anti-Communists, Catholics and Buddhists, generals and monks -- and reveals the country as if through Vietnamese eyes. With a clarity and authority unrivaled by any book before it or since, Fire in the Lake shows how America utterly and tragically misinterpreted the realities of Vietnam.
