Citation sur Last Reflections on a War: Bernard Fall [en anglais]

« Miss [Beryl] Fox uses nice touches: guns in the army chapel, the beauty of Vietnamese peasants, the ever present wind whipped further by the rotors of U.S. helicopters, the jangling medals on the chests of high officers in South Vietnam's army. »
