The youngest of six children in a close-knit Buddhist family, Le Ly Hayslip was twelve years old when U.S. helicopters landed in Ky La, her tiny village in central Vietnam. As the government and Viet Cong troops fought in and around Ky La, both sides recruited children as spies and saboteurs. Le Ly was one of those children. In this harrowing selection from the memoir of a girl on the verge of womanhood in a world turned upside down is a poignant picture of Vietnam, then and now, and of a courageous woman who experienced the true horror of the Vietnam War-and survived to tell her unforgettable story. A Vintage Shorts Vietnam Selection. An ebook short.
