I had a picture posted of Bao eating but somehow it got deleted and I can't find it online. He's sitting at a circular table eating out of a rice bowl (he's the only one in the picture) with chopsticks in case anyone has better luck. Thanks. A case of beer to anyone who finds it! :)
The book is excellent, but ends with a sad note. One of his warrior's, Bao, went into the hills to continue fighting the Communists after the end. Years later, the Communists told Bao's sister that if he and his men turned themselves in, then they would grant them amnesty. Unfortunately, he believed them, and when he came to Chau Doc to surrender, they immediately took him to the marketplace and promptly executed him. Drew Dix ends his book with the follow words. "It was a humiliating way for a warrior to go and I often think of him"
