From the Vaults: Communist Lies

The following passage is extracted from a book originally published in 1961 and revised in 1964 that was written primarily about the First Indochina War:

A Communist propaganda leaflet in my possession accuses 60 French soldiers of having raped 700 women in one afternoon. This works out to an average of eleven women per soldier. Such a compliment paid to French virility by the enemy!

On a trip to Vietnam in 1967, the author was killed by a Vietcong explosive device.
