The sacred willow seems to be the read if you want to know something about Vietnam since French colonialization up to the present. As the subtitle suggests, the book covers 4 generations but definitly puts more emphasize on the most recent two generations. What I liked most about this book is that it tried to show the motives of people who were in favor of the communists and those who opposed them. It is a great account of a political process that leads to a complete separation of an entire people.
