Orphans of the Secret War: Abandoned by an American father, then his mother released him into the care of a Thai orphanage, causing despair. A Buddhist abbot says it was fate, then a miracle happened, by Bruce Anderson
The title of the conflict "The Vietnam War", doesn't totally encompass the impact it had on the region it consumed--Southeast Asia.
In the 1960s and throughout the 70s, the much more powerful North Vietnamese Army took full advantage of Laos' weaker position by fueling the internal conflict within the landlocked country and gaining room for their troops to maneuver within Laos. During this time, and fearing that the communist propaganda would cross its border with Laos and spread unrest within, The Kingdom of Thailand agreed that the US military could use Thai air bases around the country to fight in defense of freedom and democracy. The Americans swarmed into the Thai Kingdom like migrating African bees, ultimately giving Thailand...

Disenchantment, by C E Montague
Speaking from his own experiences as a soldier and a journalist C. E. Montague writes about the boundless optimism and commitment of men who enlisted and then returned with a communal sense of disenchantment.

Describing heavy hearts and the harsh regimes imposed on both sides he explores what duty means in hindsight and questions the way in which war is fought whilst accepting the need for resolution.

He explores the pride and idealism of a nation determined to win, the scale of human loss and the traumatic legacy which is left behind.

Gravely critiquing the cost of war, ‘Disenchantment’ lifts the veil of propaganda and configured journalism which was a defining feature of WW1.
