Street Without Joy

By Fall, Bernard B




A poignant, angry, articulate book Newsweek 'Mr Fall's book is a dramatic treatment of a historic event graphic impact New York Times 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. Street Without Joy was required reading for policymakers in Washington and GIs in the field and is now considered a classic.

Street Without Joy; Insurgency in Indochina, 1946-63

Fall, Bernard B.

Harrisburg, PA: The Stackpole Company, 1963. Third Revised Edition. Hardcover. Very good/Fair. Bernard B. Fall (maps). 4379, [5] pages. Illustrations. Maps. Appendices (Glossary of Abbreviations, Comparison of Loses, and Military Bibliography of Indochina). Index. Endpaper maps. DJ torn and worn. Foreword by Marshall Andrews. Bernard B. Fall (November 19, 1926 - February 21, 1967) was a war correspondent, historian, political scientist, and expert on Indochina during the 1950s and 1960s. He started fighting for the French Resistance at the age of sixteen, and later the French Army during World War II. In 1950 he first came to the U. S. for graduate studies at Syracuse University and Johns Hopkins University, returning to live in the U.S.. He taught at Howard University for most of his career and made regular trips to Southeast Asia to learn about changes and the societies. He predicted the failures of France and the United States in the wars in Vietnam because of their tactics and lack of understanding of the societies. He was killed by a landmine while accompanying United States Marines on a patrol in 1967. This military classic covers the period from the Indochina war to the war in Vietnam. Street Without Joy or La Rue Sans Joie was the name given by troops of the French Far East Expeditionary Corps to the stretch of Route 1 from Hu to Qu ng Tr during the First Indochina War. The Viet Minh had fortified a string of villages along a line of sand dunes and salt marshes between Route 1 and the South China Sea and used these bases to launch ambushes on convoys passing on Route 1 and on the adjacent Hanoi-Saigon railway line which together formed the principal lines of communication between northern and southern Vietnam. French colonial forces carried out a major attack on the Street Without Joy in Operation Camargue in July-August 1953. The area was made known to an English-speaking audience in the book Street Without Joy by Bernard B. Fall, first published in 1961. During the Vietnam War, the Street Without Joy again became a stronghold and base area for the Vietcong.
