SOMEONE ELSE'S WAR by Howard R. Simpson
FICTION & LITERATURE
Released: Nov. 1, 1995

"Fraser's (lack of) character is unfortunate, and the story unfolds slowly and with little suspense, but, still, it's an interesting one, set in a place and time that Simpson evokes with skill and obvious knowledge."
A tired and disillusioned longtime CIA operative in Vietnam is ordered to terminate one of his agents, also his only friend, as Simpson (A Very Large Consulate, 1988; etc.) continues to mine his 1950s and '60s past as a USIA officer in Vietnam. Read full book review >
NON-FICTION
Released: May 31, 1992

"Particularly engaging as a chronicle of French defeat and, despite all best advice, the taking up of the doomed struggle by the US."
Memoir of Vietnam by the author of A Very Large Consulate (1988) and other novels, including one about the French war against the Vietnamese (To a Silent Valley, 1961). Read full book review >
