"In The Eaves of Heaven, Andrew Pham relates the life of his father, Thong von Pham, who lived through three wars: the Japanese occupation of Vietnam during World War II; the French occupation following the Japanese defeat; and the war between North and South Vietnam in which the U.S. participated. Interweaving episodes from Thong's childhood, his adolescence, and his adult service in the South Vietnamese army, Andrew emphasises the suffering that characterized Thong's life. This detailed portrait reveals the very personal effects of war while illuminating the larger picture of Vietnam's modern history."
