Listing Detail Tabs


Based on extensive research and hundreds of interviews with key officials in Hanoi, Peking, Phnom Penh, Washington, and Moscow, Brother Enemy provides the most authoritative portrait of Indochina since the Vietnam War ended with the fall of Saigon in 1975.

It details the events leading up to the outbreak of the Cambodian-Vietnamese War (also known as the "Third Indochina War") in the context of the Cold War that had divided the world.

Says one Amazon reviewer: “While on a trip visiting Cambodia's Angkor wonder, I picked up this book out of curiosity from the Central Market in Phnom Penh. It is an amazing piece of historical reporting, thoroughly researched and extremely readable. The author puts together the pieces of the puzzle to explain the wars between Vietnam-Cambodia and Vietnam-China, after the American retreat in 1975. The rise and fall of the notorious, murderous Khmer Rouge, the flamboyant Prince Sihanouk, the struggles of the Vietnamese, Chinese power plays, all of this weaved into a thrilling book of history. This book opens my mind to realpolitik: diplomacy, military power, geopolitics, race, and nationalism. Simply a great journalistic achievement which tells the truth with extraordinary balance and fascinating details.”

And another: “Undoubtedly one of the greatest books on the whole episode of Vietnam, and even greater Indochina. So full of historical facts relating to events that actually happened in our own lifetime. It will always remain among my collection.”
