The Dark Journey, Inside the Reeducation Camps of Viet Cong Two days after Saigon fell to the communists, Hoa Minh Truong walked along the path leading to the Tan Xuyen village council. He had been there many times during his army service but this time he was filled with fear. The extra-tight security included a young Viet Cong trooper who clutched a Russian-made AK-47 automatic rifle in his small hands. The gun was just one of many multi-death tools suppl...

HASH(0x91a60894) étoiles sur 5 This book should be compulsory reading 6 mars 2012

Well named, "The Dark Journey" is a story that needs to be told. It is a revealing breakdown of the political background to the rise of communism in Vietnam, and at the same time, it graphically describes the hardships endured by political prisoners caught in the crossfire of malicious communistic policies enforced by vindictive cadres. Nobody should have to suffer what Mr Truong and over 100,000 other political prisoners had to endure. His story evokes sympathy from the reader in direct proportion to the atrocities he experienced. It is a heavy book to read, but the effort is worth it for the revelations it contains, and the greater empathy awakened in the reader for political prisoners everywhere, for refugees, and for soldiers who fought in the Vietnamese and other Asian wars.

HASH(0x91a60cc0) étoiles sur 5 everyone should read this 5 décembre 2010

I urge everyone to read this book and read it to their children. Within it's pages we read how the communist takeover in Vietnam destroyed Vietnam and with it the freedoms of the individual. It shows how communism slowly spreads and the dangers and evils of it. It shows how big the propaganda machine is and the parallels we can all find happening right now in our world as the left are slowly permeating governments everywhere! I like the style of the author. He writes how I talk, changes subject often then goes back to what he was talking about. A must read.

I edited this book so read this knowing that. This is a true tale of life in Viet Nam after we left. I tells you what happens in a Communist country when the Western influence is removed. His tale is well written and heartfelt. Well worth reading...

HASH(0x91a60de0) étoiles sur 5 The world must know the Communists' crimes 22 octobre 2012
Par Michael Do - Publié sur
Format: Broché
A book review is what the readers feel and perceive after reading the book.
It must be about the contents rather than attacking the author.
Mr. Trinh Quoc Thien himself is dishonest man when he claimed that he is a lawyer. We don't know how a lawyer could write the inappropriated comments the way people use to judge a person based on the irrelevant details.
At least, the book is helpful for those who want to know how life in Communist Concentration was. The world must be awarded of the Communists' crime against their people.
Mr. Trinh Quoc Thien, don't behave like a child!

HASH(0x91a662c4) étoiles sur 5 Difficult to read 27 novembre 2010
Par Ha Quach - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is difficult to read for several reasons:

(1) The topic. Hoa was interned in several communist "re-education" camps, a misnomer. They were more like work-and-death camps run by the Vietcong (South Vietnamese Communists). The prisoners are South Vietnamese military men. They are constantly starved, overworked, and tortured. As the chapters proceed, one realizes that some men do not make it out of the camps alive.

(2) The writing. Hoa transliterates quite a bit, so there is a definite "Vietnamese voice." There are idioms such as "stupid donkey" that makes the reader cringe. Hoa clearly describes the Vietcong captors as uneducated, rather evil persons without personalities. This is easily understood. He intersperses his personal narrative with historical data that sound at times like they were plagiarized and at other times off-color opinions due to his bias. The English is sub-par and needs a lot of work to be readable.

(3) The bias. I cannot help but feel for the author that he has a deep-seated resentment toward his captors and the Vietcong involvement in the Communist North regime. However, an enlarged magnanimity would have made the reading more enjoyable. Insights into the plight of the military officers, not just their treatment, would have been useful.

(4) The plagiarism. There are passages that syntactically do not sound like Hoa wrote them. I am dismayed that an educated officer, albeit one whose native language is not English, should have to resort to plundering other authors' stylistic narratives to enhance his own. Hoa has fertile resources at his disposal that would make this book excellent without the coy cut-and-paste from other sources. This book suffers from not having a bibliography or an index.

While THE DARK JOURNEY is an important story, one written with the intention of "telling the truth" to later, post-1975 generations, a different approach would have served this purpose better. I would not recommend this book to my children even though I am personally afflicted by the events mentioned.
