Thomas Fowler verfolgt das Kriegsgeschehen in Vietnam 1952 aus sicherer Distanz. Auf der Terrasse des berühmten Hotel Continental in Saigon lernt er den jungen Amerikaner Aldon Pyle kennen, der für eine medizinische Hilfsorganisation nach Asien gekommen ist. Fowler, der alternde Journalist, und Pyle verstehen sich gut, bis Pyle sich in dessen schöne Geliebte Phuong verliebt, die fortan zwischen den beiden Männern hin- und hergerissen ist. Als in Saigon Plastikbomben explodieren, schöpft Fowler den Verdacht, dass die Chemikalien, die Pyle ins Land schmuggelt, vielleicht doch nicht nur medizinischen Zwecken dienen. Greenes großer Roman über die wichtigen Fragen des Lebens in der neuen Übersetzung von Nikolaus Stingl.

Vietnam. In a small corner of the world, one of the most bloody wars to be fought occurred in this small county in Southeast Asia. Traditionally framed as a war of small skirmishes, long patrols, and guerilla ambushes, there is a lot more that happened, including full-scale offensives and pitched battles… The US and its allies have all the advantages of mobility and firepower. The ubiquitous Huey helicopter has become a symbol of the war itself as it carries troops into battle and unloads rockets on the enemy. Heavily armed flotillas sail up the windy Mekong Delta. Heavy tanks and M113 'tracks' bash their way through the jungle searching for enemy strongpoints, and resolute 'grunts' hold firebases against fierce enemy assaults… Meanwhile, the Nationalists have all the advantages of the home team. They fight as guerillas, choosing the time and place of major operations or surprise attacks and appearing from nowhere to ambush enemy hunting them. When the time is right, they even commit their tanks, armoured personnel carriers, and seasoned troops into the fray to achieve total victory. 'Nam gives you have everything* you need to take command of one of these forces. Building on the success of Battlefront's Team Yankee, these rules and forces are easy to learn and use. Within these pages you can find all of the scenarios, missions, and notes on terrain to fully brief you before you step onto your Huey to lead your troops to the landing zone! *Well, almost everything. A groovy playlist of 1960s tunes is compulsory for maximum playability.
