The Vietnam War is long over, but many of its wounds still cannot be healed. As war raged for decades throughout Vietnam, it transformed the lives of all its people, in the countryside and in the cities, from the soldiers in the battlefields, to the women and children behind the frontline. The destruction was immense, and the effects are still felt to this day. For the first time, this book tells the story of the lives of the people behind the front lines, North and South, from the perspective of the eventual victors in the war. These are the images of war as it affected not only the combatants, but also the mothers and children, the volunteers and militia, factory workers, farmers and school teachers. These are images that have never been seen before, drawn from carefully preserved state archives. These are images that give priceless testimony to the indomitability of the human spirit.
