Originally published in 1961, before the United States escalated its involvement in South Vietnam, Street Without Joy offered a clear warning about what American forces would face in the jungles of Southeast Asia; a costly and protracted revolutionary war fought without fronts against a mobile enemy. In harrowing detail, Fall describes the brutality and frustrations of the Indochina War, the savage eight-year conflict, ending in 1954 after the fall of Dien Bien Phu, in which French forces suffered a staggering defeat at the hands of Communist-led Vietnamese nationalists.
Street Without Joy was required reading for policymakers in Washington and GIs in the field and is now considered a classic.
"A poignant, angry, articulate book" - Newsweek.
'Mr Fall's book is a dramatic treatment of a historic event graphic impact" - New York Times.
