Until recently, the North has kept a tight lid on all internal information, data, and correspondence. Now the first book has been written using unprecedented access to classified North Vietnam sources. Just started her book this week, but so far it's outstanding. There was a HECK of a lot going on in the North that we've never heard about. Thought I'd share it for those here who are interested in history.
