Beschreibung

Last Night I Dreamed of Peace is the moving diary kept by a 27-year-old Vietnamese doctor who was killed by the Americans during the Vietnam War, while trying to defend her patients. Not only is it an important slice of history, from the opposite side of Dispatches and Apocalypse Now, but it shows the diarist - Dang Thuy Tram - as a vibrant human being, full of youthful idealism, a poetic longing for love, trying hard to be worthy of the Communist Party and doing her best to look after her patients under appalling conditions.She wrote straight from the heart and, because of this, her diary has been a huge bestseller in Vietnam - 350,000 copies sold in 2005 alone. Rider brings the first English translation, in book form, to the Commonwealth markets.

Vorwort
An extraordinary Vietnam War diary from 'The Vietnamese Anne Frank', now in paperback

Autorentext
Dang Thuy Tram was the daughter of a prosperous family of doctors. In 1967, at the age of 24, she volunteered to serve as a doctor in a Vietcong battlefield hospital in the Quan Ngai Province. From 1968 to 1970 she kept a diary recording her experiences of the conflict in compelling and honest terms. She was killed by American forces in 1970.
