Although the Vietnam War is still well known, few people are aware of the
decades of struggles against the French colonial regime that preceded it,
many of which had no connection with the Stalinists (Ho Chi Minh's
Communist Party). The Stalinists were ultimately victorious, but only after
they systematically destroyed all the other oppositional currents.
IN THE CROSSFIRE is the story of those other movements and revolts,
caught in the crossfire between the French and the Stalinists, told by one
of the few survivors.
