Last Night I Dreamed of Peace (Dont Burn)
The Diary of Dang Thuy Tram

by Thuy Tram (Author). Translated by Andrew X. Pham and with an introduction by Pulitzer Prize winner Frances FitzGerald. 256 pages - £8.99 - Saxo.com til 149,95 kr.  
At the age of twenty-four, Dang Thuy Tram volunteered to serve as a doctor in a National Liberation Front (Viet Cong) battlefield hospital in the Quang Ngai Province. Two years later she was killed by American forces not far from where she worked. Written between 1968 and 1970, her diary speaks poignantly of her devotion to family and friends, the horrors of war, her yearning for her high school sweetheart, and her struggle to prove her loyalty to her country. At times raw, at times lyrical and youthfully sentimental, her voice transcends cultures to speak of her dignity and compassion and of her challenges in the face of the war’s ceaseless fury.
