The book “Waging peace in Vietnam” is published by the Tre Publishing House.

The book gathers stories of American soldiers and anti-war activists collected from newspapers, posters and leaflets. It also features articles by scholars and anti-war activists like Christian Appy, and Chairwoman of the Vietnam Peace and Development Foundation Nguyen Thi Binh who played a key role in the achievement of the 1973 Paris Peace Accords on ending the war and restoring peace in Vietnam.

Ron Carver, a compiler of the book, said from 1968 to 1972, more than 300 anti-war newspapers were published for soldiers serving on camps or war vessels of the US. They reflected the opinions of hundreds of soldiers coming from the working class and newly-appointed officers who bravely raised their voice to protest the war and the unfairness in the US military then.

Aside from the book introduction, a photo exhibition on the objection to the unjust war in Vietnam was also opened at the War Remnants Museum on September 20.
