Diary of A Young Artist is a beautiful reproduction of the diary notes and sketches of Vietnamese war artist Pham Thanh Tam, created in the Vietminh trenches while on the front line of the decisive battle of Dien Bien Phu. This publication marks the 50th anniversary of the battle against the French, widely considered as being one of the most decisive in history, equal to Waterloo and Stalingrad. The monumental consequences of Dien Bien Phu are the perfect example of the seemingly impossible feats that can be achieved by a local guerrilla force, determined to defend their homeland. The battle brought about the end of French colonial Indochina, the independence of Vietnam and the split of the country in two, so setting the stage for the American Vietnam War (1965-1975).
