Product Overview

Saigon is Burning is not just a dry recital of history. This story is told from a different angle, as author Laurette Heger recounts her youthful memoirs during the Japanese invasion of Southeast Asia between 1940 and 1945. As a child, she observed first-hand the Japanese invasion of Vietnam, then a French Colony, and watched the Japanese efforts to conquer that part of the world while France, having been invaded by Nazi Germany, was unable to offer its help. Heger recalls the downfall of the French colonial regime, the rise of the Vietminh, the independence of Vietnam, and the beginning of the first French-Indochina war that preceded the involvement of the United States. But this story moves to a deeper personal level, as one family attempts to live a traditional French life in the tropics while dealing with the horror and destruction of war in their private lives.
