But the tiger will not stand still. He will leap upon the back of the elephant, tearing huge chunks from his side, and then he will leap back into the dark jungle. And slowly the elephant will bleed to death. Such will be the war in Indochina." -Ho Chi Minh THE ELEPHANT AND THE TIGER (originally published in 1990 by Hippocrene Books), is a thorough and thought-provoking history of the Vietnam War.
