Frank Thanh Nguyen, who was born in Dalat, South Vietnam, to a large family where his father and uncles all served in the Army of the Republic of Vietnam, has completed his new book “Rain On The Red Flag": an inspiring work that delves into how during several escape attempts Thanh discovered parts of his country and its people that weren’t known to him before.

Thanh writes, “To my father, Nguyen Van Toan, my brother Thach and his family, and my brother Thông, who are looking down from heaven and guided me through the completion of this book. To all the friends whom I met in jails and labor camps, your bravery, endurance, and courage inspired me to tell this story. And last but not least, to hundreds of thousands of Vietnamese people who perished at sea seeking freedom.”

Published by Page Publishing, Frank Thanh Nguyen’s emotional book explores how after the fall of South Vietnam to the Communists in 1975, he spent the next two years trying to escape the new brutal regime. Later, Thanh was captured by the undercover police.

For four years, Thanh was held in jails and labor camps, chained, and starved. Only his love for freedom, music, the memory of his girl, his family, and friendship with the other prisoners keeps him sane. When Thanh was finally set free and returned to Saigon, he helped to build a boat. He found himself captaining the boat to navigate himself and seventy-five other refugees through tumultuous seas to seek freedom again. He ultimately reunited with his family in the US.

Readers who wish to experience this riveting book can purchase “Rain On The Red Flag" at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes Store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
