    schema:description ""Bernard Fall: Memories of a Soldier-Scholar is both a biography of Fall and his widow's memoir. Dorothy Fall tells the story of this courageous and influential Frenchman, who experienced many of the major events of the twentieth century. His mother perished at Auschwitz, his father was killed by the Gestapo, and he himself fought in the resistance. Bernard Fall, however, focuses primarily on Vietnam and on two love stories. The first details Fall's love for Vietnam and his efforts to save the country from destruction and the United States from disaster. The second shows a husband and father dedicated to a cause that continuously lured him away from those he loved."--Jacket."@en ;
