New Review of Annamese Published

A new review of Last of the Annamese has appeared on the Internet Review of Books site. To read it, go to the site ( and look for the cover of Annamese. Click on the cover and the review will appear.

The review is very favorable, but the author, William Crawford, got both the name and service of the character Colonel Thanh wrong. His name is Pham Ngoc Thanh, not Tranh, and he is a Marine, not an army officer. Granted, a small matter.

What struck me most about the review is how much the author knows about me. My best guess is that he divined most of the information from the book itself or searched for me online. Most important, he got the facts right.
