  • Rice Wars in Colonial Vietnamby Geoffrey C. Gunn

    Rowman & Littlefield Publishers 2014; US$ 87.99

    Famine and war are frequent bedfellows, with civilian deaths due to starvation and malnutrition sometimes outnumbering battlefield casualties. This scenario was clearly the case in colonial Indochina as WW II reached its climax. The great famine of 1944-45 is largely unknown or forgotten in the West, and this new book by Gunn appears to be the first... more...
