Fall wrote the definitive book on why the US failed in Vietnam, and is doomed to fail in Afghanistan. American politicians may have read it, but they certainly didn't understand it!

Required reading for Vietnam Students
There is no better account of how Ho Chi Minh defeated the French and esablished the blueprint to defeat America. The future was there for anyone to see who took the trouble to look. This classic is a primer on assymetrical warfare.

Historical Parallel in Fall's Book
Street Without Joy should be in everybody's backpack who is going to be shipped to Afghanistan and every civilian's nightstand as we prepare to enter a war fueled by opium and fantical resistence. Although patriotic nationalism resulted in a united Vietnam, the energy of religous devotion of the Talliban fuels a resistance against occupation. Fall's history echoes through the past to the present with ink the color of the Vietnam Memorial.
