John Gerassi went to North Vietnam as a member of the first investigating team for the International War Crimes Tribunal set up by the Bertrand Russell Peace Foundation. This book, first published in 1968, is the record of that visit and of the author’s sympathy for the ordinary people caught up in the conflict. It is primarily intended as a historical document, and provides valuable on-the-spot records of the war as experienced in North Vietnam.
