Last Night I Dreamed of Peace: An extraordinary diary of courage from the Vietnam War

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.

An excellent read from the other side of the Vietnam War. This book truly captures the confusion and heartbreak of a Doctors struggle to fight for what she belives in.

This is not a great read - it's a diary, after all - but it's an important and moving read. The notion of handing out stars for someone's personal diary seems very inappropriate, but five stars for Trâm's strength of spirit and her courage.
