It is also the story of Avril de Castries, daughter of a French banker and Vietnamese businesswoman, persecuted by the Japanese, orphaned by the French Legionnaires and Viet Minh, and caught up in the conflict between the United States and North Vietnam. Their relationship is played out against a rich background, including the Plains Indians, the Chinese and North Koreans, and the North Vietnamese. They compete with failures of our State Department, intrigues at the CIA, condemnation of the Sioux Indians, and emotional baggage from Wounded Knee, No Gun Ri, and My Lai.
