Free (Kindle) Street Without Joy: The French Debacle In Indochina [Military History]

Street Without Joy: The French Debacle In Indochina by Bernard B. Fall is a vintage military history about exactly what it says in the title, originally out from Stackpole in 1961 and still out from them, free courtesy of their Stackpole Military History series.

Currently free @ Amazon (not available to Canadians).

Description
Originally published in 1961, before the United States escalated its involvement in South Vietnam, Street without Joy offered a clear warning about what American forces would face in the jungles of Southeast Asia: a costly and protracted revolutionary war fought without fronts against a mobile enemy.

In harrowing detail, Fall describes the brutality and frustrations of the Indochina War, the savage eight-year conflict-ending in 1954 after the fall of Dien Bien Phu-in which French forces suffered a staggering defeat at the hands of Communist-led Vietnamese nationalists. With its frontline perspective, vivid reporting, and careful analysis, Street without Joy was required reading for policymakers in Washington and GIs in the field and is now considered a classic.
