Tragic Mountains - new book

2000, ISBN: 9780253207562

ID: 9780253207562

Tragic Mountains: Paperback: Indiana University Press: 9780253207562: 01 Jan 1993: The name Hmong means 'free people' or 'those who must have their freedom and independence'. History records ancient Hmong homelands in China, a fiercely independent culture dating back to 2000 BC, and centuries of oppression. This title tells the story of the Lao Hmong Struggle for freedom and survival since 1940. The staunchest of allies, the Hmong were America's foot soldiers in the brutal secret Lao theater of the Vietnam War, risking all to defend their homelands and to rescue downed American air crews. Abandoned by the United States when it withdrew in 1975, the Hmong have been subjected to a campaign of genocide by communist Laos and Vietnam, including the use of chemical-biological toxin warfare. Thousands of Hmong, now scattered in refugee camps, are being forcibly repatriated to Laos - where they face retribution and terror.
