Cerritos, CA (Vocus/PRWEB) March 31, 2011
Xlibris, the self-publishing services provider, announced today the release of A Vietnamese Fighter Pilot in an American War. In this book, author Hoi B. Tran opposes American history’s records that the U.S. had been defeated by the motley, ragtag People’s Army of North Viet Nam. Hoi also strongly opposes the unjust and unfair denigration of Viet Nam veterans upon their returning home. This is the first book written by a Vietnamese fighter pilot in the U.S. and is an important addition to the Viet Nam War puzzle.
According to the author, most Western journalists portrayed Ho Chi Minh as a nationalist patriot. As a former Vanguard Youth Troop in Ha Noi, North Viet Nam, who passionately sang “who loves Uncle Ho more than us children” to praise Ho when he seized power in 1945, the author says: “Ho was a villain.” This book is a truthful account of what actually happened in North Viet Nam from 1945, Dien Bien Phu in 1953, to the demise of South Viet Nam in April 1975.
As well, this book is a reminiscence of the author’s seventy-six years of life spanning from the last quarter of the twentieth century to the early twenty-first century, and how he learned that Uncle Ho was but a heartless scoundrel, a villain who dragged Viet Nam into a long bloody internecine war. This story is about his poor, underdeveloped, and ill-fated country that was the target for foreign invasion and China domination in ancient history. It is about a country badly ravaged by wars because of the egocentric monster Ho Chi Minh.

About the Author
Hoi B. Tran was a 10-year-old Vanguard Youth Troop in Ha Noi, North Viet Nam, who revered Ho Chi Minh when he seized power in August 1945. Fascinated by propaganda, Hoi passionately sang “who loves uncle Ho more than us children” as taught by Communist cadres. In 1953, Hoi was conscripted into the Nationalist Vietnamese Air Force to fight against Ho. When Viet Nam was divided in 1954, Hoi had to evacuate to the South. In 1955, Hoi was sent to the U.S for training. After the Gulf of Tonkin incident, Hoi flew the first retaliatory strike mission in North Viet Nam with the VNAF on February 8, 1965.
