Description


Saigon, Kampuchea, and Burma. These names of places in Asia are like many that once existed but now officially do not. As the times have changed, so have the names, but many of the old labels still live on. To forget them would be to forget the people and events that made those places what they are today. Readers of this book will find accounts of one city, three countries, and four empires. Unfortunately, much of the history of these places is extremely bloody. Stories of wars, mass killings, executions, and uprisings fill these pages. In this book, however, readers will also find tales of individuals and groups of people who stood tall in the middle of all that chaos, destruction, and horror. They may not have always won their battles, but with great courage, they always held out hope for a better future.
