Reviews - What do customers think about LES SOLDATS PERDUS (Memoires)?

A look into the sorriest chapter of the Indochina War  Oct 4, 2005
A highly valuable book for Vietnam historians and those interested in the psychology of men in captivity. The French National Association of Former Prisoners of War and Internees (my term for ANAPI) asked it members to provide memoirs of their time in captivity. Among those who responded, 27 were chosen. Under the direction of Cyril Bondroit (author of the "3rd BCCP en Indochine"), who once again does his father's comrades justice, these were assembled into 27 essays which provide valuable snapshots of the various prison camps, their inmates, and the processes the prisoners had to undergo in order to survive. Mr. Bondroit's talent shows up in the varied mix of the soldiers, sailors, airmen, and civilians whose stories he selected. Foreign Legionnaires, nineteen year old enlistees, career officers and NCOs, chaplains and doctors, from Legion, Colonial Infantry, North African, Senegalese, Vietnamese (early ARVN), Laotian, and partisan units all share their experiences, providing a valuable cross-sectioned photo of the French Expeditionary Corps which fought the war, and their motivations for doing so. The essays are all highly captivating, and a series of plates provides both photos of the various authors as well as statistics concerning the high rate of deaths among Indochina prisoners. The only drawback to this work is that being first person accounts, the authors are allowed to skip over the really unpleasant aspects of their conduct in captivity, although the majority allude to them. Given the suffering they endured, this is understandable, but it limits the work's value to a psychologist.
